About this Item

Mili was a pioneer in the portrayal of movement in photography. Not only did his engineering of photographic lighting tools and techniques in the 1930s change the possibilities for depicting movement, but his photographs themselves altered the public's general understanding of motion in general. Through the sheer number of his motion photographs and their frequent publication in Life magazine, Mili revealed the mechanics of human kinetics to postwar society. His dynamic fashion and advertising images demonstrated his ability to adapt his discoveries creatively without overwhelming the image in photographic pyrotechnics. A retrospective of his work was held at ICP in 1980, the same year that this book was published. It spans fifty years of his photographs. 10½" - 11", dust jacket is price-clipped and has some creasing. Signed by Mili. Size: 10½" - 11" First printing First printing First printing.
