Picasso: Drawing With Light.

Picasso: Drawing With Light. Photographs by Pablo Picasso. Found via designrelated's twitter.

"Pablo Picasso's Flashlight Centaur: 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."

Magical, beautiful, and wonderfully inspiring. To see more images from this series of photographs go here.
