In 1949 Pablo Picasso posed for Life Magazine's Gjon Mili. Mili was a technical prodigy and lighting innovator. Mili shot these photographs in a darkened room, using two cameras, one for side view, another for front view. By leaving the shutters open, he caught the light streaks swirling through space. The images Picasso painted vanished as soon as they were created, but because of the photographs they live on six decades later! See these paintings below.
