A man rides a galloping horse as seen in this series of photographs depicting motion. These images, taken by Eadweard Muybridge, demonstrated a then-contentious theory that all four legs of a horse left the ground when at full gallop. From a limited edition of 295.
Photographer Eadweard Muybridge uses high-speed stop-motion photography to capture a horse’s motion. The photos prove that the horse has all four feet in the air during some parts of its stride. The shots settle an old argument … and start a new medium and industry.
