Montmorillon - In town (Vienne), France

Du ciel à l’enfer, il n’y avait qu’un pas, un pas mené de grâce par les aléas de la vie, un pas qui, guidé le long d’une allée pavée de bonnes ou de mauvaises intentions, se faisait son chemin de chimère. Adossés aux couleurs du monde, seuls le noir et le blanc offraient encore à notre âme les reflets irisés de la décence, celle qui, battue par les insatiables vents de l’espoir, guidait les plus démunis sur les chemins pavés de la foi.

From heaven to hell, there was only one step, one step gracefully lead by life’s hazards, a step that, guided along an alley paved of good or bad intentions, was creating its pipe dream track. Leaned on the colors of the world, only the black and the white were offering to our soul the iridescent reflections of dignity ; flapped by the insatiable winds of hope, it was guiding the very poor on the paved tracks of the faith.

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.
