Eadweard Muybridge
Eadweard Muybridge {1830-1904} is known for his photographs of the California landscape and his pictorial studies of animals in motion. With the help of a zoopraxiscope - the precursor to the modern motion picture projector - he was the first to create the illusion of movement by projecting still photographs in sequential order. For his famous galloping horse sequence, Muybridge used a complicated system of 24 cameras whose shutters were tripped by the horse as it ran by them.
