Spanning nearly a half-century, this collection of forty-eight duotones images by the noted documentary photographer Willy Ronis captures Parisians in moments of unalloyed leisure: a guitarist at a riverside cafe tries to distract a foursome engaged in animated conversation, a toddler rides a tricycle on the deck of a barge, a couple holds hands as they lie next to a slice of calm water. Reminiscent of impressionist scenes, the photographs capture not only the tranquillity of spring and summer Sundays but also the calm communal spirit created by the water's flow. Observing in his foreword that only a trick of light or the talent of the photographer can give a semblance of movement to photographed water, Noel Simsolo contrasts the ever-changing flow of human memory with Ronis's timeless, sun-drenched images.
