PARIS — From fashion photography to documenting post-war Paris and Provence, French photographer Willy Ronis showed a virtuosity and versatility through his long career. Arguably the most iconic image is Le Nu Provençal, Gordes, a nude of his wife Marie-Anne captured in their house in the South of France. In an interview, Ronis recalled how, like with most of his work, this photograph was the fruit of happy circumstance. But every master must be able to see the moment, and seize it too...

The Pavillon Carré de Baudouin in the 20th Arrondissement Paris is currently a major retrospective of Ronis' work with some 200 photographs and interviews of this leading figure of what came to be known as "humanist" photography.
