Willy Ronis 1910-2009

Willy Ronis Willy Ronis, one of the most celebrated photographers of Paris has died aged 99. A contemporary of Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Doisneau he took many photographs of Paris in its heyday that have become iconic images of the city. I was lucky to catch him speaking at his last show at this year's Rencontres d'Arles and I was amazed at how he was still so willing to participate in discussion panels, sign books and just chat to people. He will be missed, but 99 is a pretty decent innings. Aurevoir Willy.
