This image is part of the sequence Animals: historical Muybridge images of a lion in motion


Caption: Lion. High-speed photographic sequence of a male lion (Panthera leo) walking around an enclosure. This sequence, by the British-American photographer Eadweard James Muybridge (1830-1904), is from the book Animal Locomotion (1887). The action runs from left to right starting at the top left. Muybridge pioneered the use of high-speed photography and employed ingenious techniques to analyse 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.
