Magnac-Laval - In town (Haute-Vienne), France

Les nuances de jaunes, de verts et de rouges se mêlaient de contrastes dans un étonnant bal des couleurs. Adossées au mur qui garantissait encore leur unité, elles se débattaient avec le temps, cherchant dans les reflets de chaque nouvelle journée les teintes adoucies du monde. Le brillant avait disparu et le clinquant s’était assagi ; il ne restait en face de nous que la présence silencieuse d’un monde intègre dont les couleurs se chargeaient chaque jour un peu plus du passage du temps.

The nuances of yellows, greens and reds were mixing their contrasts in a strange dance of colors. Leaning their backs against the wall that was still guaranteeing their unity, they were struggling with the time, seeking in the daily reflections the sweetened tints of the world. The greatness had gone, and the tawdriness had become wise; was only left in front of us the silent presence of a honest world whose colours were being loaded each day a little more by the passage 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.
