The choice of photos
About Willy RONIS
Ordering information
The opportunity to inaugurate this collection was provided by a chance encounter between Alain Dhouailly and Willy RONIS. After many long hours and numerous meetings, the two finally chose twelve photos from the photographer’s archives covering the period 1948 to 1994, with special attention given to the 1950’s and 60’s.

Certain images are particularly well known, others less so. Together, they render homage to nearly half a century of photographic excellence by one of France’s leading photographers.
