More about Eadweard J. Muybridge

Eadweard J. Muybridge  born on 9 April 1830  and he was an English photographer of Dutch ancestry who spent much of his life in the United States. He is known for his pioneering work on animal locomotion which used multiple cameras to capture motion, and his zoopraxiscope, a device for projecting motion pictures that pre-dated the flexible perforated film strip.  Eadweard J. Muybridge died on 8th May 1904.

A galloping horse and a murder were the two highlights of Muybridge’s life . He killed a man, who was his wife’s lover and was later acquitted, not as a result of the insanity plea that he had put forward but because the jury believed that the murder could be categorised as ‘justifiable homicide.’
