Here are some amazing photographs of the legendary artist Pablo Picasso painting with light photographed by Gjon Mili back in 1949.

Using a small light bulb, Picasso created these intimate light drawings in a dark room and the results shows the artist’s signature style in each one of them.

    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.
