Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904) born Edward James Muggerage came to America form England in 1851. He worked as a book distributor that introduced him to photography albums. He began making smaller Yosemite landscapes and stereo views in 1867 and in 1872 made is most significant landscape work in Yosemite with the mammoth plate camera. After this he became interested in motion studies under the patronage of Leland Stanford. He took time lapse photographs of horses that showed for the first time that when a horse galloped all four hooves are off the ground. Using this Animal locomotion format he moved to Philadelphia and made a series of Human Locomotion views and other works that effectively served toward the development of moving pictures, movies.
