Amour sacré

Guîtres - At the church (Gironde), France

Maculées de rose, les lourdes portes du paradis laissaient entrouverte l’idée d’un possible pardon dans un monde vicié de jugement. La foi, entretenue par l’inusable présence d’un amour sacré, se retrouvait ainsi, elle-aussi, sous le feu des vices, aveuglée par la réalité forcée que les appels du dimanche matin perpétuaient.

Stained by the pink, the heavy doors of paradise were leaving half open the idea of a possible forgiveness in a world defiled of judgment. Faith, maintained by the hard-wearing presence of a sacred love, was thus finding itself in the spotlight of the vices, blinded by the forced reality that the calls of the sunday morning were keeping alive.

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.
