Based on an exclusive interview with the famous photographer Willy Ronis, with iconic or less known photos, this film invites us to a journey through the diversity and richness of his work, ten years after his death. Having been an emblematic representative of so-called “humanist” photography, Willy Ronis unfairly lived in the shadow of Robert Doisneau and Henri Cartier Bresson. And yet, his sensitivity to the daily struggles to survive in a precarious professional, family and social context is one of the strengths of his work. His political commitment sets him apart from many others.
