Gjon Mili and the science of movement

The Albanian-American photographer Gjon Mili is known for his work illustrating entire sequences of human movement in a single picture, something never seen before in the mid-twentieth century.

He was able to capture these images using stroboscopic photography, a technique that combines an electronic flash unit with prolonged exposure times. The results are amazing sequences of movements and gestures.
