Watch: BBC’s ‘The Weird World of Eadweard Muybridge’

April 9, 2017 /Photography News/ A portrait of the pioneering photographer, forefather of cinema, showman and murderer Eadweard Muybridge. He was born and died in Kingston upon Thames, but did his most famous work in California – freezing time and starting it up again, so that for the first time people could see how a racing horse’s legs moved. He went on to animate the movements of naked ladies, wrestlers, athletes, elephants, cockatoos and his own naked body, projecting his images publicly with a machine he invented and astounding audiences worldwide with the first flickerings of cinema. BBC’s Alan Yentob follows in Muybridge’s footsteps as he makes – and often changes – his name, and sets off to kill his young wife’s lover.
