En voulant se fondre dans la nature, l’homme oubliait qu’il n’y avait aucune règle d’écrite et que les multiples formes qu’elle pouvait prendre n’étaient régies que par les éternelles manifestations de l’aléatoire. Nous n’étions que ces piètres copieurs, incapables de comprendre que cette perfection mesurée ne pouvait être accessible que par l’absence de contrôle.

While trying to melt into nature, mankind was forgetting that there wasn’t any written rules and that the multiple shapes that it could take were only ruled by the endless manifestations of the randomness. We only were these mediocre copiers, not able to understand that this measured perfection could only be achieved through the absence of control.

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.
