Le temps s’était imposé une gloire à nulle autre pareille. Silencieux dans ses sages retranchements, il n’avait souffert d’aucune contradiction, ne s’était mis en avant à aucun moment plus propice qu’à celui d’aujourd’hui, debout parmi une éternité qui s’envolait en poussières de gris. Au milieu d’un monde devenu éphémère, la pierre tranchait l’horizon de couleurs teintées d’ocres terreuses, organiques et pastels.

The time imposed an incomparable glory. Silent in its wise corners, it didn’t suffer any contradiction, didn’t push itself forward at any other time than the one of today, standing amongst an eternety that was flying away in grey dust. In the middle of a world that has become ephemeral, the stone was slicing the horizon of colors tinted of earthy, organic and pastel ochres.

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.
