The Male and Female Figure in Motion
Muybridge's classic photographic studies of the human figure in motion were originally published a century ago in his landmark collection Animal Locomotion. For the first time the world was provided with accurate and detailed photographic studies of human bodies in various physical activities. Taken at speeds of up to 1/6000th of a second, these historic stop-motion sequences captured the most subtle of movements. No more complete study of the human body in action has ever been attempted. In this inexpensive edition there are sequences of men boxing, hammering, heaving a rock, walking, running, leaping, climbing steps, carrying weights, playing baseball, cricket and football. Women are shown walking, turning, kneeling, jumping, bending, dancing and dressing. A final sequence shows a child crawling on hands and knees, crawling up stairs, and running. .
