Pablo Picasso: Drawing WIth Light.

Hi folks.

I’m making a couple of changes to this blog.
I’m changing all of those categories on the right hand side and tweaking a couple of other things.

When I write something on here it should now update all of my other internet pages.
I need to test it out but instead of a test post,
I thought I’d show you something cool.

That’s Pablo Picasso drawing with light in 1949.
1949!
A good 50 odd years before the trend caught on.

The story:

LIFE photographer Gjon Mili visited Picasso in 1949. Mili showed the artist some of his photographs of ice skaters with tiny lights affixed to their skates jumping in the dark and Picasso’s mind began to race.
The series of photographs that follows—Picasso’s light drawings—were made with a small flashlight in a dark room; the images vanished almost as soon as they were created’.
