I read that Willy Ronis, age 99, died yesterday. As part of my master series of photographers, I had the honor of meeting him, at his home in Paris. He was as affable and charming, as he appears in my photo. He was mourning the recent death of his beloved wife and lived alone with his beautiful photographs, cameras and books. He was still photographing then and welcomed me, showing his passion,and his love of life and photography.
