In a walk-through of the current landmark exhibition "Helios: Eadweard Muybridge in a Time of Change"
in Washington (coming to Tate Britain this September), Getty Museum's distinguished former curator of
photographs, Weston Naef, noted some startling observations to lead him to conclude that some early Muybridge photos may not be taken by him.
Instead, Naef suggested they were done by others, whilst Muybridge merely published them. If he is correct, the histories of photography are about to be significantly revised. What other photography historians and curators have to say about the dispute will be very interesting to see.
