Major twentieth-century photographer Willy Ronis (1910-2009) contributed to Life, Vogue, and Time, and he received numerous international awards. Exhibition curator and author Matthieu Rivallin manages the twentieth-century-photography archives at the Mediath que de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine in Paris.
"Known for conveying the reality of post-war France through black and white images, Ronis is recognised as a key figure in 20th century photography. Flammarion's publication showcases personal and previously unseen works, each framed within their technical and historical context - offering an intimate and definitive compendium of the artist's oeuvre." --Aesthetica Magazine
