Horse In Motion by Mike Stimpson

Photographic Prints


A recreation of a photographic experiment conducted by Eadweard Muybridge in 1878. Muybridge set out to determine that all four feet of a galloping horse left the ground at the same time. I have been unable to reproduce his findings.

And yes, those are 16 unique shots. There’s no excuse for laziness when conducting important experiments like this.
