At a Glance

Eadweard Muybridge was a brilliant photographer of the American West who earned patents for his photographic inventions. (Lest you think it's a typo, he purposely adapted this version of the name "Edward.") Muybridge rose to international fame in 1878 with his "Horse in Motion" series of 16 photographs that settled a long-running argument — that a horse has all four hooves off the ground in mid-stride. He went on to capture over 100,000 photos of people and animals in motion that, when rapidly displayed, became motion pictures! Join writer and filmmaker James Dalessandro for a discussion on Eadweard Muybridge and his influence in the world of entertainment, orthopedic medicine and beyond.
