Eadweard Muybridge


A Gif (Graphic Exchange Format) is a terrific tool to visualize imagery. They require a series of photographs to be taken of a moving subject which are then stitched together to create an active visual, ie. an animation.

Animation is highly advanced today and used in everything from motion pictures to medicine and industrial training. However, it was invented in the mid-19th Century by a British photographer Eadweard Muybridge. Muybridge was interested in motion and photographed all forms of movement including runners, animals, and sportsmen while they were in motion. His early animations are the historical foundation for the entire field of visual technology today.

Wouldn't you like to be standing at this fellow's waterfall viewpoint!
