Willy Ronis, one of the great French post-war photographers, died on Saturday 12th September. He was 99.
Ronis made his name photographing everyday life in Paris. Richard Bram remembers him as “A great photographer and a charming gentleman”, and recalls “a delightful conversation with him in London.

David Gibson met him too, and remembers “his phrase ‘the fear of missing’ about his photography. One of the true greats.”
