Gâvres - Along the Atlantic ocean (Morbihan), France

Loin des dédales de béton qui recouvraient d’artifices minéraux des pans entiers de vies mesurées, le bois respirait encore sur le bord des côtes bretonnes. Sous les coups de chaque nouvelle marée, il se désintégrait un peu plus, matraqué par les assauts répétés des embruns iodés. Rien ne résistait à l’air salin, seule la vie se régénérant en de multiples facettes colorées transformait les vérités existantes en de nouvelles visions de la réalité.

Far from the labyrinths of concrete that were covering of mineral artifacts entire parts of measured lives, the wood was still breathing along the Breton coasts. Under the assaults of each new tide, it was breaking up a little more, clubbed by the repeated assaults of the iodic ocean sprays. Nothing could resist the saline air, only life regenerating in multiple colored faces was transforming the existing truces into new visions of the reality.

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.
