Rizzoli announces new book featuring Willy Ronis's unpublished albums
Willy Ronis curated and commentated on the iconic images featured in this beautiful volume that retraces his career and contributions to photography and photojournalism.


NEW YORK, NY.- A key figure in twentieth-century photography, Willy Ronis conveyed the poetic reality of postwar Paris and Provence in iconic black-and-white photographs. Influenced by Alfred Stieglitz and Ansel Adams, and well-known among his contemporary Magnum photographers, Ronis was the first French photographer to contribute to Life Magazine.

Throughout his life, this powerhouse of humanist photography kept meticulous records of his work, curating each era into albums, which are reproduced here for the first time. Timeless photographs of postwar France and its inhabitants are accompanied by the photographer’s original observations and comments, framing the images within their technical and historical context. Photography historian Matthieu Rivallin’s critical perspective adds nuance to the photographer’s notes, and the ensemble is a groundbreaking and definitive reference on the myriad aspects of the artist’s immense career.

Willy Ronis was a major photographer of the twentieth century, working with Brassaï, Robert Doisneau and Ergy Landau. His photographs were published in Life, Vogue and Time magazine. He was known for his engaging photographs that captured the lives of the working-class neighborhoods of Paris after the Second World War, as well as for his more intimate portraits. His photographs have been featured in numerous international exhibitions, and in 2005 the Paris City Hall honored his work with a major retrospective exhibition. He was the recipient of many awards, including the Venice Biennale Gold Medal, the Grand Prix des Arts et Lettres for Photography, and the Prix Nadar. The Oxford Companion to the Photograph called him "The Photographer of Paris par excellence." Matthieu Rivallin has curated numerous exhibitions, including one dedicated to Willy Ronis. He is the author of several photography books and manages the twentieth-century photography archives at the Mediathèque de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine (the Library of Architecture and Heritage).
