Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Muybridge and the Science of Photography

Curated by Museums Sheffield in partnership with Sheffield Hallam University, Sports Lab: The Science Behind the Medals explores the science behind Britain’s sporting champions and assesses how much success is due to natural talent, genetic advantages or technological innovation.

Featured in the exhibition are also the early motion capture photographs of Eadweard Muybridge, including a zoetrope. Details of the exhibition can be found here.  The exhibition will transfer to the V&A Museum of Childhood in London in 2012 to mark Olympic year. The full report can be found here.
