Caption

Pigeon flying. High-speed photographic sequence of a pigeon in flight. This sequence, by the British- American photographer Eadweard James Muybridge (1830-1904), was published in the book Animal Locomotion (1887). The action runs from right to left, seen from the side at top and from the front at middle and then bottom. Muybridge pioneered the use of high-speed photography and used 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 sometimes have all of their feet off the ground. He proved that they did.
