Let there be light

LIFE photographer and lighting innovator Gjon Mili met Picasso in 1949 and showed him some photographs he took of ice skaters jumping with lights attached to their skates. The story goes Picasso granted him 15 minutes to experiment with him in his studio and was so excited by the results that he posed with Mili for five sessions. The series, now known as Picasso's "light drawings," still live on more than 60 years later, even though the actual drawings disappeared moments after being created. [More of light drawings here.]
