Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904)

Eadweard Muybridge, who lived between 1830 and 1904, is a photographer known for his work on the decomposition of movement. We owe to him a series of photos breaking down the movements of a running horse and thus put an end to the long debate on the position of the hooves during gallop.

Taking many successive photos of one and the same action, Muybridge improved our understanding of human and animal movement, such as walking or running. He invented, moreover, a camera, known as the zoopraxiscope, which allowed one to animate, in a way, a series of photos.
