Dedicated to one of the most internationally famous French photographers, Willy Ronis, this exhibition showcases the artist's most iconic works as well as some of his lesser-known ones. Many of Ronis’s best-known photographs are micro-narratives, portraying men and women on the street, doing ordinary, everyday activities. Ronis’s lens also highlights social injustice and the underprivileged classes of society.
