Exposing Muybridge
Brilliant, ambitious, and mischievous, the 19th-century English photographer Eadweard Muybridge (who spent part of his life in San Francisco) lived a dozen lives before his breakthrough photographs of running horses set the course for the development of cinema and transformed the camera into a machine of unmatched perception and persuasion. But hiding in Muybridge’s work are clues that provoke an enduring question: can we believe what we see in a photograph?
