ABOUT LEO

During the summer of 2017, a man of uncertain origin and age could be spotted by the Seine at the crack of dawn. In Paris, it is an hour known to few creatures other than rats and night-clubbers.

There is much speculation about why he was there, unfailing, at every dawn.

Searching for the sublime.

On November 5, 2017, the full morning moon hung high in the west. Its beams lit the tip of Ile de la Cité, where a small notebook and camera had been left behind. Like some offering, the words and images of every dawn lay waiting there, beneath the weeping willow.

The opus is signed LEO (Love Each Other).

In a postscript, LEO wrote that Love felt like the river flowing through his heart, and with it came the words.

Returning to this river again and again, never to see the same water, reminded him of the transformation of love during his own life.

The original poetry, photography, and playlist by LEO capture each distinctive break of day, reminding us of the special energy that dwells in new beginnings.

Every sunrise is a new beginning.

The work is sequenced to follow the rising sun as it progressively reveals the most sublime potential of love.

How the work is organized
 

There are 36 Sunrises on the Seine presented as three sections of 12 each. Every one of these has been matched to verses about love under the section "Rising of Words" The "Interludes" are prose commentaries set in contrast to the lyrical style of the free verse.

“Moonlight”, “Dawn”, or “New Day” follow the rising sun as it progressively reveals the sublime potential of love.
