Willy Ronis exhibition at the Monnaie de Paris


Yesterday I finally managed to see the beautiful Willy Ronis exhibition that took place at the Monnaie de Paris building. It was ending that day and I really feel lucky not to have missed it. He was a fabulous photographer and the exhibition showed some famous pictures like the little Parisian boy with his baguette (see below) but also others less famous and still very touching. A real Master.

This picture is truly lovely. So innocent. I love the fact that the baguette it bigger than him!

I had hoped to see it, but it's not to be.

I really enjoyed the picture of the woman at the sink they used on the posters in the Métro. I'm sorry I missed this one!

Cette photo est une des seules de Willy Ronis qui ne soit pas tout à fait spontanée, en effet le photographe a demandé au petit garçon de courir avec sa baguette, ce qu'il a fait avec beaucoup de bonne humeur visiblement! Il existe de nombreux livres de Willy Ronis mais mon préféré reste un tout petit bouquin paru chez Folio, "Ce jour-là", dont le texte est aussi intéressant que les photos. Bonne soirée!
