Caption: Woman lifting child. High-speed photographic sequence of a woman lifting a naked child. This sequence, by the British-American photographer Eadweard James Muybridge (1830-1904), is from the book Animal Locomotion (1887). The action runs from right to left and is seen from the side, the front and the back. Muybridge pioneered the use of high-speed photography and employed novel techniques to view animal and human locomotion. He began his work on high-speed photography when he was commissioned to discover whether galloping horses have all of their feet off the ground at certain times. He proved that they did.
