Willy Ronis.
Sur le Fil du Hasard.


Photographs and text by Willy Ronis.
Contrejour, Paris, English and Fre, 1984. In France. 159 pp., 120 b&w duotone plates, 43 b&w text halftones, 9½x12".

Ronis' great tender photograph of a young woman, nude, washing out of a basin, with window light bathing the interior space, has been remembered by thousands of individuals who originally saw it in Steichen's "Family of Man" exhibit in 1955 and in its many subsequent reproductions since. Other photographs by this French photographer have rarely been seen in this country. This new, beautifully printed monograph shows us that Ronis was not just a one photograph photographer. Full of wit, passion, and tenderness, his photographs will rank him with France's--and the world's--greatest photographers.
