Basville - At the church (Creuse), France

Eclatant de froid, le ciel avait cédé, ouvrant son horizon à cœur ouvert sur ces bleus éblouissants qui se mettaient désormais en accord avec les multiples appels précoces de la saison. La pierre, blanchie par les incessants assauts de l’azur, irradiait les environs et le soleil, galvanisé par les invisibles miroirs terrestres, réchauffait le temps d’un instant le fond de l’air, glacial en cette après-midi hivernale de début d’automne.

Sparkling of coldness, the sky had collapsed, opening its open-hearted horizon onto these shining blues that were now matching the multiple precocious calls of the season. The stone, whitened by the unstoppable assaults of the blues, was radiating the surroundings, and the sun, galvanized by the invisible terrestrial mirrors, was, for one moment, heating up the air, freezing in this wintery afternoon of autumn’s beginning.

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.
