Bringing It Back with Picasso

In 1949, the world renowned artist Pablo Picasso attempted to create light paintings. The photos above were taken by Gjon Mill of LIFE magazine in the South of France in 1949. The series of photographs above known as Picasso’s ‘Light Drawings’, were created using a small flashlight in a dark room. The images disappeared almost as soon as they were taken.
