English photographer Eadweard Muybridge — is a pioneer in visual studies of human and animal locomotion. In , he famously helped settle a bet for former California governor Leland Stanford by photographing a galloping horse. This book traces the life and work of Muybridge, from his early thinking about anatomy and movement to his latest photographic experiments. A detailed chronology by British researcher Stephen Herbert throws new light on one of the most important pioneers of photography. Hans Christian Adam studied psychology, art history and communication in Gottingen and Vienna. As a specialist in historical images, he has published numerous articles and books, including titles on travel and war photography.
We think the representation to be unimpeachable, until we throw all our preconceived impressions on one side, and seek the truth by independent observations from Nature herself. When a horse trots or gallops, does it ever become fully airborne? This was the question photographer Eadweard Muybridge set out to answer in Railroad tycoon and former California governor Leland Stanford was convinced the answer was yes and commissioned Muybridge to provide proof. As a horse sped by, it tripped wires connected to the cameras, which took 12 photos in rapid succession.
He adopted the first name Eadweard as the original Anglo-Saxon form of Edward, and the surname Muybridge, believing it to be similarly archaic. Planning a return trip to Europe in , he suffered serious head injuries in a stagecoach crash in Texas. In he exhibited large photographs of Yosemite Valley , which made him world-famous. In Muybridge shot and killed Major Harry Larkyns, his wife's lover, but was acquitted in a jury trial on the grounds of justifiable homicide. Today, Muybridge is known for his pioneering work on animal locomotion in and , which used multiple cameras to capture motion in stop-motion photographs, and his zoopraxiscope , a device for projecting motion pictures that pre-dated the flexible perforated film strip used in cinematography. During his later years, Muybridge gave many public lectures and demonstrations of his photography and early motion picture sequences, returning frequently to England and Europe to publicise his work. He also edited and published compilations of his work, which greatly influenced visual artists and the developing fields of scientific and industrial photography.

Eadweard Muybridge , born in England but active as a photographer in the United States for most of his adventurous life, was a key figure in photographic history. On giant glass plates he captured the natural splendor of Yosemite and photographed panoramas of San Francisco. He notoriously shot and killed his wife's lover, but his fame was earned by solving the problems of short-time exposure—and exploiting its possibilities. His subsequent studies of human and animal movement became the ultimate passion of Muybridge, the chronophotographer and predecessor of cinema. As a specialist in historical images, he has published numerous articles and books, including titles on travel and war photography.
