Woman Walking, Holding a Basket on her Head, Eadweard Muybridge, 1887

collotype, h 482mm × w 612mm More details

Eadweard Muybridge is a major forerunner of modern photography. He demonstrated early on that a camera ‘sees’ more, and better, than the human eye. He began making studies of motion in 1872 to settle the question whether all four legs of a horse are off the ground at the same time when galloping. And, indeed, horses ‘float’. Many a painting turns out to be based on a misunderstanding.
