Willy Ronis 1910-2009

From France24: Iconic Paris photographer Willy Ronis died on Saturday at the age of 99. He was one of France's giants of photography, particularly famous for his images of post-war Paris in the 1940s and 1950s.

Ronis became the first French photographer to work for Life magazine and in 1953 Edward Steichen included Ronis, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau, Izis, and Brassai in an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art titled Five French Photographers. In 1955, Ronis was included in the Family of Man exhibition.
