Description

During the 1870s, Eadweard Muybridge became the first photographer to experiment with motion studies of animals and humans. By the 1880s, improved technology helped him create tens of thousands of stop-action photographs of a wide range of living creatures. These images offered scientists, physicians, and even artists a new understanding of movements that were too fast for the naked eye to register. In Muybridge's 788-print Animal Locomotion series, created in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania, nude and nearly nude studies of women and men offer unfettered, often lyrical, and surprisingly modern views of human form and gesture.
