Watch: BBC's 'The Weird World of Eadweard Muybridge'


April 9, 2017 /Photography Tidings/ A portrait of the pioneering photographer, forefather of cinema, showman and murderer Eadweard Muybridge. He was born and cash in ones chipped in Kingston upon Thames, but did his most famous work in California – frosty time and starting it up again, so that for the first time people could see how a tearing horse’s legs moved. He went on to animate the movements of naked ladies, wrestlers, athletes, elephants, cockatoos and his own unmixed body, projecting his images publicly with a machine he invented and astonishing audiences worldwide with the first flickerings of cinema. BBC’s Alan Yentob understands in Muybridge’s footsteps as he makes – and often changes – his name, and sets off to devastate his young wife’s lover.
