Oradour-sur-Glane - Open-air museum (Haute-Vienne), France

Comme un coup de tonnerre dans le temps, le silence s’était emparé de ce lieu. Oradour-sur-Glane était ce symbole atemporel qui avait marqué le début d’une ère nouvelle, le début d’un monde qui avait désormais franchi le point de non-retour.

Like a thunderstorm, silence had seized this place. Oradour-sur-Glane was this timeless symbol that had marked the beginning of new era, the beginning of a world that had jumped over the point of no return.

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.
