Gâvres - Along the Atlantic ocean (Morbihan), France

En déambulant le long des berges de la pointe de Gâvres, on plongeait dans une éternité aux contours adjacents au monde réel ; la vie microscopique, elle qui était à l’origine de la vie humaine et que nous chassions de nos quotidiens, colonisait de nouveau le monde. Ses verts de mousse représentaient les inévitables formes de l’avenir de la planète, ces lignes éparses et diffuses blotties à l’abri des fléaux du temps.

While wandering around the coast of the Gâvres headland, one was diving into an eternity with edges adjacent to the real world; the microscopic life, the one being at the origin of the human life although being hunted down from the daily life, was colonizing the world again. Its green foams were representing the shapes of the planet’s future, these scattered and diffuse lines, sheltered from the curse of the time.

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.
