Muybridge (1830-1904) was a pioneer in visual studies of human and animal locomotion. In 1872, he famously helped settle a bet for former California governor Leland Stanford by photographing a galloping horse. Muybridge invented a complex system of electric shutter releases that captured freeze frames--proving conclusively, for the first time, that a galloping horse lifts all four hooves off the ground for a fraction of a second.
