Ils avaient fermé la porte sur le temps, laissant derrière eux les reliques d’un monde dont les histoires s'empoussiéraient d’abandon. En regardant à travers ces fenêtres brisées, on était avalé dans un monde oublié par la mémoire vivante mais dont chaque mur se souvenait. Les odeurs ne se trompaient jamais.

They had closed down the doors, leaving behind them the relics of a world from which the stories were making dusty of abandonment. By watching through these broken windows, one was swallowed into a world forgotten by the living memories but that each wall could remember. Smells were never wrong.

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.
