Eadweard Muybridge Flipbook
This flipbook features six different stories depending on the position of your thumb as well as augmented reality, viewable when scanning the slipcase with your smartphone or tablet: a 2-minutes micro-documentary about the artists life, his background and his most outstanding work. THE PIONEER OF MOTION Eadweard Muybridge (1830 - 1904) was an English photographer renowned for his groundbreaking work in the field of motion photography, and his early work in the projection of moving pictures. Muybridge created motion studies of animals and people in motion – for example in walking, posing and running positions – and these were added to discs and viewed in his zoopraxiscope, a device for projecting moving images that pre-dated the flexible perforated film strip used in cinematography. This flip book shows 6 of his most remarkable studies shot between 1877 and 1878, including the famous “Jumping Horse” or the “Lady jumping the Stool”, among others.
