Willy Ronis was a French photographer famous for his poetic images the Parisian life after World War II. Very much alike his friend and companion Henri Cartier-Bresson, Ronis found lyrical moments in the fray of everyday life. About his work, Ronis said: ‘I never sought the extraordinary or the scoop. I looked upon what complemented my life. The beauty of the ordinary was always the source of my greatest emotions’. In his probably most emblematic image, ‘Le Petit Parisien’ (1952), Ronis represents a young French boy who was joyfully running on the sidewalk with a baguette under his arm. Born on August 14th, 1910, in Paris, France, both his parents were refugees who escaped the Pogrom’s riots of the persecution of the Russian empire. Influenced by his father who was an amateur photographer and ran a portrait studio, he began studying Alfred Stieglitz’s works. Ronis was the first French photographer to work for LIFE magazine. In 1955, he was included in the exhibition titled ‘The Family of Man’ organized by Edward Steichen at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The artist died at the age of 99 on September 12th, 2009 in Paris, France.
