Default French photographer Willy Ronis dead Saturday at age 99

A new story entry has been added:

French photographer Willy Ronis dead Saturday at age 99

Quote:
Ronis died at a Paris hospital where he had been admitted days earlier, said Stephane Ledoux, the president of the Eyedea photo agency.

Lovers, nudes and scenes from Paris streets were the mainstay of Ronis' photographs, which reflect the so-called humanist school of photography in an award-winning career that began in the 1930s and reaped honors for him in France and abroad.

In a wheelchair and on dialysis for some time, the mustachioed Ronis nevertheless managed to address the crowd at the annual Arles photographic exhibition in July, where he was honored.

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.
