Eadweard Muybridge Photo Gallery


San Francisco photographer, Eadweard Muybridge conducted motion-sequence still photographic experiments and is often called the "Father of the motion picture" even though he did not make films in the manner we know them as today. Eadweard Muybridge displayed his work on the zoopraxiscope, which he invented in 1879. The zoopraxiscope projected a series of images in successive phases of movement. These images were obtained through the use of multiple cameras.
