Willy Ronis

Born 1910 in Paris, France.
Died 2009 in Paris.
Willy Ronis is a key figure in the history of French photography and a leading representative of “humanist” photography, which sought to fraternally capture the essential features of people’s everyday lives. In 1979, he was guest of honor at the 11th Rencontres d’Arles. He donated all his works to the French state in 1983. Today they are in the Médiathèque de l’Architecture et du patrimoine (MAP).
