Chalonnes-sur-Loire - Along the Loire river (Maine-et-Loire), France

Pavés de lignes imaginaires et d’histoires emmêlées de silences, les quais qui longeaient les bords de Loire traçaient de nouveaux mondes dans l’espace qui les entourait. Figée dans l’infini, la scène n’avait point attelé le scénario au script, laissant aux vagabonds le choix des destins croisés que les plus belles images du néant avaient à offrir.

Paved of imaginary lines and of stories tangled of silences, the quays that were going along the Loire river were drawing new worlds in the space that was surrounding them. Frozen into the infinity, the stage wasn’t linking the scenario to the script, leaving to the vagrant the choice of the crossed destiny that the most beautiful pictures of the nothingness had to offer.

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.
