La Nouaille - Fête de la Montagne Limousine (Creuse), France

A l’abri des ombres qui jouaient avec les heures, un bruit de corde pincée envahissait l’espace. Il enivrait les regards tournés vers l’horizon de mélodies venues d’ailleurs, résonnant sur les murs tel un tintement oisif que seule l’oreille pouvait accueillir. L’œil était devenu un attribut secondaire.

Sheltered by the shade that was playing with the time, the sound of a plucked string was invading the space. It was inebriating the looks now turned to the horizon with melodies coming from elsewhere, echoeing on the walls such as an idle jingling that only the ear could welcome. The eye had become a secondary attribute.

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.
