Gâvres - Along the Atlantic ocean (Morbihan), France

Devant nos yeux plissés par les reflets brillants du monde s’étendait un territoire de sagesse, un territoire qui ouvrait les bras à un océan de silences. Assis là à contempler l’infini se jouer de nos approximations sensorielles, nous juxtaposions nos vertiges au monde qui les entourait et réalisions que la sagesse avait quitté la terre ferme depuis maintenant des siècles. Réfugiée à l’abri des mauvaises intentions, elle avait pris le large, se terrant au fond d’un antre auquel l’homme ne pouvait encore physiquement accéder.

Before our eyes squinted by the shiny reflections of the world, was standing a territory of wisdom, a territory that was opening its arms to an ocean of silences. Sitting here contemplating the infinity playing with our sensory approximations, we were juxtaposing our vertigo to the world that was surrounding them and were realizing that wisdom had left dry land for centuries now. Sheltered in a safe place away from bad intentions, it had taken off, hiding at the bottom of a lair that mankind couldn’t yet physically reach.

From inside cultures, people and countries, Léon wants to reflect the world as it is. With and without lines, Léon tries not to lie about what he sees and lets know what people express, and what landscapes tell.
