THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE LES AGENCY
"If I had to characterize the natural forest in one word, I would say it is a gradient. A gradient of everything. A gradient in both time and space. And the gradient of life: from inception to death. A gradient of conditions, a gradient of disease, a gradient of light, a gradient of ages. A gradient and continuity."
