Au loin, là où l’horizon se charge des ciels que le futur pérennise, les bleus émotifs de ce mois d’Octobre ne semblait pas en mesure d’émousser la quiétude des lieux. Au creux de l’oreille, le cliquetis des bouchons attachés aux lignes qui claquait dans l’eau paisible nous chantait une berceuse à nulle autre pareille. La douce pesanteur des vallées fluviales offrait du temps au temps.

Further away, where the horizon was being loaded with skies that the future makes durable, the emotional blues of October didn’t seem to be able to bother the quietness of the place. In our ears, the jingling of the floats attached to the lines that were flapping in the peaceful water was singing an incomparable lullaby. The sweet ponderousness of the fluvial valleys was buying time to 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.
