Willy Ronis by Willy Ronis


Willy Ronis (1910–2009) was one of the great photographers of the twentieth century. Selected by MoMA curator Edward Steichen for inclusion in two groundbreaking exhibitions, The Family of Man and Five French Photographers, his work depicts the poetic and poignant reality of life in postwar France. From carefree children to embracing lovers, and from sun-dappled Provence to the cobblestones of Paris, Ronis’s humanist eye found joy in the simplest moments of everyday life. In his last decades, Ronis donated his complete works to the French State. To accompany this gift, he made a personal selection of what he considered to be his most noteworthy images—590 in total—mounting them in a series of albums and providing meticulous commentary on each photograph. Combining anecdotes with historical and technical context, they constitute an essential document on the photographer’s long career. This exceptional volume reproduces, in full, the contents of Ronis’s albums for the first time. Together they form a touching, intimate portrait of the life, career, and worldview of a singular artist in the history of photography.

Biographie de Willy Ronis

Willy Ronis (1910-2009) est une figure majeure de la photographie humaniste française aux côtés d'Édouard Boubat et de Robert Doisneau. Se destinant à la musique, il doit cependant aider son père à tenir son studio photo et se forme ainsi aux techniques du tirage. À la mort de celui-ci, il décide de se consacrer aux reportages photographiques, au sein de l'agence Rapho (où il entre en 1946), ainsi qu'à la « chasse aux images » au gré de ses voyages, dans le monde, en France et à Paris.
