Willy Ronis

An exhibition has opened this week in Paris to celebrate Willy Ronis' legendary work. Visitors to the Monnaie de Paris on the Left Bank of the Seine will be able to discover some of the late photographer's most famous works alongside of some more secretive snapshots of his quest to define humanism's aestheticism.

This beautiful poster for the exhibition is presenting one of his most famous picture, Provençal Nude, 1949, a picture of his wife.

A certain idea of Beauty.

Willy Ronis died at age 99, on September 12, 2009.
