Eadweard Muybridge.

English photographer Eadweard Muybridge was a pioneer in photography and motion during the late 1800’s.

Eadweard created the zoopraxiscope a process of projecting animated versions of his photographs as short moving sequences which creates a cinematic theater that developed history of cinema.

looking at the photography of Eadweard Muybridge you can see the evolution of the camera and how far it has come. in 1950’s Muybridge pushed the creation of the camera presenting films. static imagery in movement, of animals and humans.

Looking at the movement of his work it reminds me of Duane Michals due to the black and white antique imagery, the way the photographs are placed to indicate the understanding of how they move due to the structure of the object, animal or person.

this one is rather interesting to me as i like the change of the person. As shes a bigger shape than the other people he worked with i can imagine the movement of the body, how she would walk and the way her body moves.
