Credited as the “father of the motion picture,” Eadweard Muybridge pioneered the study of human and animal motion in time-lapse photography that documented the dynamics of ordinary, everyday movement. Under the auspices of the University of Pennsylvania, Muybridge produced over 100,000 photographs, publishing 20,000 of them in his eleven-volume Animal Locomotion (1887). His work caused a sensation in artistic and scientific circles, helping spur the development of modern art and contributing to the science of bio mechanics. This exhibition features iconic Muybridge studies of horses and zoo animals, men engaged in various athletic pursuits, and women in domestic activities.
