Albanian born Gjon Mili arrived in the United States in 1923. Fifteen years later, he was a photographer for Life (a relationship that continued until his death in 1984). Working with Harold Eugene Edgerton of MIT, Gjon Mili was a pioneer since the 1930s in the use of photoflash to capture a sequence of actions in one photograph. 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 groundbreaking pictures of dance, athletics, and musical and theatrical performances revealed the beautiful intricacy and graceful flow of movement too rapid or too complex for the eye to discern. Here are just a few images, well worth a google though to see some amazing shots.
