Gene Kelly Dancing

Gjon Mili photographed for LIFE from 1939 until his death in 1984.
He photographed many celebrities from Gene Kelly to Pablo Picasso.
Mili trained as an engineer and was extremely interested in technology. He was actually one of the first people to use the electric flash for photography.
I think his work reflects his love for technology because it truly captures movement and is so dynamic and expressive..
