Walking. High-speed photographic sequence of a male athlete walking quickly. This sequence, by the British-American photographer Eadweard James Muybridge (1830-1904), was published in the book Animal Locomotion (1887). The action runs from left to right and is seen both from the front and the back. 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.
