Eadweard Muybridge

Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904)

Muybridge-2

Inquiry into motion with a camera. The ability to breakdown movement, revealing the complex in-betweens of mundane, everyday gestures, sitting, standing, walking…, freezing figures in mid air, defying physics, exposing the process of motion which the human eye can not see.

Muybridge, photographic motion studies. 1872 – 1878
