Photographer Eadweard Muybridge (1830–1904), often termed the father of the motion picture, presented his iconic Animal Locomotion series in 1887. Produced under the auspices of the University of Pennsylvania and encompassing thousands of photographs of humans and animals in motion, the series included more than 300 plates of nude men and women engaged in activities such as swinging a baseball bat, playing leapfrog, and performing housework—an astonishing fact given the period’s standards of propriety. In the first sustained examination of these nudes and the remarkable success of their production, wide circulation, and reception, Indecent Exposures positions this revolutionary enterprise as central to crucial advancements of the modern era. Muybridge’s nudes ushered in new attitudes toward science and progress, including Darwinian ideas about human evolution and hierarchy; quickened debates over the role of photography and scientific investigation in art; and offered innovative perspectives on the human body. This fascinating story is copiously illustrated, and includes many lesser-known photographs published here for the first time.
This is the only complete edition now available of the most definitive photographic study ever made of human and animal life in motion. Painstakingly reproduced from an extraordinarily rare set of original plates and sturdily clothbound, it includes more than 4,500 stopped-action photos of nude and partially nude men, women, and children in a wide variety of physical activities. Another 4,000 stopped-action photos depict animals in motion. Each plate fills a two-page spread, showing the same action from three different angles simultaneously. Essential for painters, sculptors, and photographers, fascinating to all with an interest in the arts and sciences.

Genre: Biography & Autobiography
Eadweard Muybridge pioneered the field of the movie picture--it's because of him that we have movies today. He also got away with murder ‒ literally. In 1874, he shot and killed his wife's lover and got away with it for essentially saying the guy had it coming. But murder was only part of Muybridge story. He was brilliant. Creative. And eccentric. And because he got away with murder, we have Hollywood. This book tells his bizarre, yet fascinating, life story—a story that involves scandal, violence, and…flying horses!
