One thought on “Light Paintings of Pablo Picasso

  1. Beautiful work! I recently did a post on light painting, and the background of when it began in 1914 when motion study pioneer Frank Gilbreth used small lights and the open shutter of a camera to track the motion of manufacturing and clerical workers. I would love to learn more techniques. Of course, these are more than spectacular photos, nothing less than Picasso.
