About Willy Ronis: La Vie en Passant

For more than half a century, Willy Ronis, recognized as an outstanding photographer of Parisian scenes, has also captured images of romance, charm and everyday life. His photographs were the first pictures by a Frenchman to appear in "Life magazine, and were also featured in Steichen's renowned "Family of Man exhibit. Like his contemporaries Cartier-Bresson and Doisneau, Ronis is interested in the people of France--how they live and work--and in the ineffable qualities that make his country so appealing. His deep empathy for humankind gives his photographs a poignancy that sets them apart. More than 80 images are included in this beautiful tribute to a living legend.
