Gjon Mili

« Time fould truly be made to stand still. Texture could be retained despite sudden violent movement. »

Trained as an engineer and self-taught in photography, Gjon Mili was the first to use electronic flash and stroboscopic light to create photographs that had more than scientific interest. Since the late 1930s, his pictures of dance, athletics, and musical and theatrical performances have astonished and delighted millions of viewers, revealing the beautiful intricacy and graceful flow of movement too rapid or too complex for the eye to discern. His portraits of artists, musicians, and other notables are less visually spectacular, but equally masterful.

In 1939, Mili became a freelance photographer workign for LIFE. In the course of more than four decades, literally thousands of his pictures were published by LIFE as well as other publication.
