Freeze Frame: Photography of Motion

Unless you are a film student, you may not have heard the name Eadweard Muybridge. But this English photographer became famous taking pictures of animal and human movement imperceptible to a casual viewer. In fact, it was Muybridge who proved that there was a moment in a horse's gallop when all hooves were in the air.

The Smithsonian has an exhibit dedicated to Muybridge's achievements. For a century, historians believed his photos to be scientific studies of motion.

Read about his photographs of horses in motion, and learn about his process of taking pictures. Look at the sequences of human motion, too (but be warned that there is some nudity; Muybridge had to see all aspects of human movement).

For more information on Muybridge and motion photography, browse through the museum's list of related resources.
