Edward Muybridge

Motion and Document Sequence and Time: Eadweard Muybridge and Contemporary American Photography
by James L. Sheldon
Publisher's Description
This monograph examines similiarities between the work and ideas of Eadweard Muybridge and modern contemporary artists such as Berenice Abbot, Paul Berger, Walker Evans and Robert Mapplethorpe. "Perhaps because Muybridge's motion studies were so encyclopedic, and revealed so many innovative possibilities, increments, and permutations for perceiving action in time and space (orchestrated as they were with a myriad of subjects directed gefore runways, and grids - recorded by sets of cameras from multiple vantage points), his ideas have remained particularly relevant to contemporary artists grappling with both predictable and unpredictable ways in which human perception continues to expand."--the publisher.
