it was 1949 when pablo picasso was introduced to gjon mili, a photographer who at the time worked for LIFEmagazine – where he demonstrated some of his images of ice skaters with lights fixed to their skates, jumping in the dark. fascinated from the results, the spanish artist then conceived a series of projected light drawings in a dark room with two separate cameras and a small electric light attempting to ‘paint’ his versions of centaurs, bulls and greek profiles.
