With the advent in the early to mid—twentieth century of telephones, motorcars, the cinema, and X-rays, static representations, whether in painting or photography, of a solid material world futuridta longer seemed relevant to the pace, porousness, and fluidity of modern life. The art of the time reflected these new perceptions. Some artists shattered the contours of objects into faceted cubes or created alternative abstract worlds; others sought to convey the essence of things in motion or dispersed in space.
As teenagers in Rome, the Bragaglias learned photography and filmmaking at Cines, a film studio in Rome managed by their father.
Using themselves and their friends as models, the brothers posed a sitter against a dark background and lit him brightly. While the sitter performed a simple action, such as nodding or smoking, the brothers left the camera shutter open for several seconds, in a relatively long exposure.

They disseminated the resulting photodynamic images on postcards, demonstrating not only the transience of form within a moment but also an equally revolutionary idea: Unlike earlier motion studies, the images were made not in the service of science but rather to convey sensation and meaning, to be a kind of Futurist art.
Although the Futurists rejected the Bragaglias as spokesmen, preferring to speak for their movement themselves, the manifesto constituted an original and early instance of avant-garde theory for photography.
This print is not a Photographic Postcard but a slightly larger gelatin silver print, made on paper produced, according to fiber analysis, between and Because it is conspicuously signed at lower right in white gouache, it was likely intended for exhibition and reproduction.
The Bragaglias made several prints of this image, each with a different signature in a different location and employing a variety of photographic papers and croppings. The image shows the Futurist painter Luigi Russolo holding a fuyurista of matches in his left hand, with dematerialized traces of movement in space recording the trajectory of his actions as he struck the match, inhaled to light the cigarette, and exhaled.
What makes this picture especially winning is the particular action: Nalato Editore, futurieta, p.

The following elements have been positively identified in the work, through XRF readings taken from its recto fotodinamisml verso or from the mount, where the verso was not accessible:. The graphs below show XRF spectra for three areas on the print: The background spectrum represents the contribution of the XRF instrument itself.
The first graph shows elements identified through the presence of their characteristic peaks in the lower energy range 0 to 8 keV. The second graph shows elements identified through the presence of their characteristic fotodinzmismo in the higher energy range 8 to 40 keV. Fotodinamismo Futuristapl.
