He has been called "the most poetic photographer of the menu people [common people] this century". Up until his death in 2009, Willy Ronis was one of the last of the surviving documentary photographers in the warm, humanist tradition of Kert├ęsz, Cartier-Bresson and Doisneau. In his nude photographs, he sought out the sensual side in the prosaic flow of the everyday. In a 2005 interview, quoted in his New York Times obituary, he said, "It is my contemporaries who most interest me, ordinary people with ordinary lives. I have never sought out the extraordinary or the scoop. I looked at what complemented my life. The beauty of the ordinary was always the source of my greatest emotions."
