High jump. High-speed photographic sequence of an athlete doing the high jump. This sequence, by the British-American photographer Eadweard James Muybridge (1830-1904), was published in the book Animal Locomotion (1887). The jump runs from left to right and is seen both from the side and the front. Muybridge pioneered the use of high-speed photography and employed novel 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.
