It would be very curious to record by means of photographs, not the stage of the picture, but its metamorphoses. Light Drawings — photographs of Pablo Picasso by Gjon Mili, 1949
LIFE photographer Gjon Mili visited Picasso in Vallauris, France. He showed Pablo some photographs of ice skaters with tiny lights affixed to their skates jumping in the dark. Picasso was immediately inspired, these photos were the result.
Photographer Gjon Mili used light to dramatic effect, as in this series depicting artist Pablo Picasso "painting" with light, thanks to an open camera shutter and a pen light.
