Willy Ronis, 1934-1987.

Photographs by Willy Ronis.
Treville, Tokyo, English & Japan, 1991. In Japan. Unpaged, many duotone plates, 5x7½".

Photographer Willy Ronis has been called "pure Parisian" in his artistic vision as well as his background. With Henri Cartier-Bresson, Brassaï, and others, he "took the lead in the photographic arts" of his age in France. After becoming a freelance photographer in 1936, Ronis traveled the world, yet he always returned to Paris. His works emerge from an "instinctive eye" conveying "the meaning of the words l'amour de l'humanite."--Hiromi Nakamura. This gem-like little volume captures Ronis' vision of the Parisian streets that he loved, of European people and places, and of the pathos and pleasures that he constantly saw unfolding around him.
