Happy birthday, Eadweard Muybridge
It is the birthday of Eadweard Muybridge (1830), who is remembered for his pioneering work in motion picture photography. His series of photographs of animals and humans to study their movements are iconic in the history of photography. Muybridge also was a bookseller when he moved from England to San Francisco in 1855. Here is an interesting biography about Muybridge that reveals much more of his background.
