Willie Ronis


 

Willy Ronis (August 14, 1910 – September 12, 2009) was a French photographer, the best-known of whose work shows life in post-war Paris and Provence. He was born in Paris; his father was a Jewish refugee from Odessa, and his mother was a refugee from Lithuania, both escaped from the pogroms. His father opened a photography studio in Montmartre, and his mother gave piano lessons. The boy’s early interest was music and he hoped to become a composer.
