Eadweard Muybridge, (unknown title & date), late 1800s.
Muybridge is most known for his photographic studies of motion, using various animals but also many human nudes in the 1870’s. As a fun side note: He shot and killed his wife’s lover but was acquitted in a jury trial on the grounds of justifiable homicide, but that’s a whole other story… Muybridge utilized a series of cameras and trip wires in order to capture the moments in-between locomotion. He also created the Zoopraxiscope, a device for viewing motion picture which pre-dated perforated film strip used in cinematography today. See more at http://www.muybridge.org/
