Muybridge was born in Britain as Edward James Muggeridge, but lived for many years in the USA as Eadweard Muybridge. He was the first photographer to capture the movement of people and animals in photo sequences. In the 1870s he began taking pictures of galloping horses. He experimented with a special shutter and an arrangement of 12 or 24 cameras in a row. Muybridge developed a method to project photographs onto a screen as ‘moving pictures’.
