Picasso's Third Dimension

here's a beautiful portrait that Gjon Mili took of Picasso drawing his signature Bull in 1949. the photograph is titled "Picasso's Third Dimension" and was part of a series of photographs Gjon Mili created using flashlights. he called them "space drawings". Mili achieved this effect by opening the shutter in total darkness to capture only the light emitting from Picasso's flashlight, and then using a quick flash to capture Picasso and the background.

Read more about the photograph at VP Gallery.

Very cool ML. Check out the film, "Mystery of Picasso" and see his creations come to life in real time.
