Born in Paris at the foot of the Butte Montmartre in 1910 to a photographer (his father) and a piano teacher (his mother), Willy Ronis was faced with creativity from the beginning. A new book, Willy Ronis[1] (Taschen[2]) by Jean-Claude Gautrand, celebrates his evolution from a 10-year-old apprentice in his family’s studio during the first world war to the 99-year-old man who created a collection of intimate, caring black-and-white photographs that document the 20th century. 

Take a look in the DuJour gallery for some of Ronis’ timeless images.
