Artist’s Bio:

Interested in “ordinary people with ordinary lives,” Willy Ronis was among the postwar French photographers who spent his career roaming the streets of Paris, photographing people in love, at work, and at play. Like his French photography compatriots Robert Doisneau, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Brassaï, Willy Ronis (1910-2009) was a central figure in the “humanist photography” movement, which celebrated poetry in everyday life. Ronis became the first French staff photographer for LIFE Magazine, with work included in Edward Steichen’s “Five French Photographers” (1951) and “The Family of Man” (1955) exhibitions. In 1979 he was awarded the Grand Prix des Arts et Lettres for Photography by the Minister for Culture. Ronis also won the Prix Nadar in 1981 for his photobook, Sur le fil du hazard. In 2005–2006 Paris City Hall held Willy Ronis in Paris, a retrospective exhibition of his work, that had more than 500,000 visitors.
