Black and White Movements Photography by Gjon Mili Gjon Mili was an Albanese photographer living in New York who was born in 1904 and died in 1984 of a pneumonia. Known for his black and white long exposure pictures he has worked a long time on artists portraits for magazine Life. On that time the long exposure didnt exist on the tools of cameras ; to get this effect he used stroboscopic lights to illustrate the action and movements sequences. We can see dancers Frida Kahlo a Broadway dance…
