Clothed Descending a Staircase No. 2
In an homage to Marcel Duchamp's masterpiece Nude Descending a Staircase No. 2 (itself inspired by Eadweard Muybridge's photographs), Eliot Elisofon photographed Duchamp performing the act himself in 1952, and used multiple exposures to mimick the artist's famous time-lapse-style painting.
