Produced in close cooperation with Willy Ronis and featuring images from his archives, this book traces the career of one of France’s most remarkable photographers, to whom, along with Doisneau, Cartier-Bresson, and Brassaï, we owe our romantic vision of France. In Ronis’s photos of Paris, the city is inseparable from the working class men, women, and children who inhabit its streets and cafes. He once described his approach to photography in five words: “patience, thinking, chance, form, and time.” Working with available light, Ronis sought to capture the fleeting moments of everyday life, and his body of work documents, with timeless beauty and grace, the feel of French life in the 20th century. Today, at age 94 and still working, he is a living legend.

And his work is well represented in my favorite photography book of all time: Family Of Man.
