Item description for Willy Ronis: La Vie En Passant by Sylvia Bohmer...

This major monograph of one of France's greatest living photographers features the most important images from a long and distinguished career.

For more than half a century, Willy Ronis, recognized as a great photographer of Paris, has been capturing images of romance, charm and everyday life. His photographs were the first of his countrymen's to appear in Life magazine and were also featured in Steichen's renowned Family of Man exhibit. Like his contemporaries Cartier-Bresson and Doisneau, Ronis is interested in the people of France---how they live and work---and in the ineffable qualities that make his country so appealing. His deep empathy for humankind gives his photographs a poignancy that sets them apart. More than 100 images are included in this beautiful tribute to a living legend.

Reviews - What do customers think about Willy Ronis: La Vie En Passant?

Not the best exposition of Ronis's work  Mar 21, 2008
Several of Willy Ronis's photographs are among my all time favorites and some of them are in this book. But I was disappointed in the quality of the reproductions, and, in some cases, the choice of pictures. Several of the street photographs are so-so as street work, and they've been made less satisfactory by the blotchy reproduction that turns shadow detail into monotonous black. Willy Ronis is a very, very good photographer, much better than this book makes him seem.
Ordinary Things Made Extraordinary by the Gifted Willy Ronis  Jan 2, 2006
The gift of French photographer artist Willy Ronis is his ability to define the essence of the French way of life better than any other photographer. Though many of his images have be seen in Life Magazine and in Steichen's exquisite portfolio 'The Family of Man', this fine monograph allows the reader to concentrate on Ronis' work alone and that provides a sense of wonder that this man has so ably captured the everyday life in Paris, the spectrum of characters who grace the shops and streets, and the flavors of the City of Light.

Nothing about Ronis' art is staged. He is a photographer of observation, remaining in the background, creating a chronicle of life among the ordinary people. His eye is sensitive, refined, and spontaneous: these images feel like side glimpses during am unhurried stroll (like a flaneur) through the streets of Paris. It is simple in appearance: it is amazing in construction. The essays by Sylvia Bohmer and Matthias Harder add immeasurably to this fine monograph. Highly Recommended for lovers of fine photographic art. Grady Harp, January 05
