Eadweard Muybridge

Eadweard Muybridge (1830 - 1904) was originally an English photographer, who used his experimental photographic techniques to capture the motion of animals; this was done by using a diversified number of cameras and the use of a zoopraxiscope, which projected the images into a motion (animation). One of the most memorable ‘animated’ set of photos that Eadweard Muybridge produced was ‘the horse in motion’; Eadweard Muybridge wanted to verify that a horses feet actually ascended from the ground when it galloped, this was a subject, which perceived human beings for years; because Eadweard Muybridge experimented and succeeded with establishing these facts it made him not only a famous man, but also a Memorable person, who’s images and techniques are still used till this day.
