Little story

Although he did most of his work in America, this brilliant British photographer was a renowned pioneer in motion capture through the use of multiple cameras, more than twenty of them in the case of his study of motion. His work brought new knowledge to scientists and artists alike, and was the ground base of the ulterior discovery of the cinematograph. These plates were published in "Animal locomotion" in 1887, and they were realized in collaboration with the New York American Museum of Natural History. With them, Muybridge aimed to study motion and to demonstrate, for example, that when a horse is trotting, there is a moment during which none of its four legs touches the ground.
