muybridge horse

Eadweard Muybridge (1830 - 1904) was a pioneer in his field, developing a technique of multiple cameras to capture movement of human and animal models at various stages in their stride, or whatever requested action was acted out before his array of equipment. Horses were a favoured topic, being of such importance to daily life at the time. This grey mare was named Pandora.
