1. Eadweard Muybridge [2010]

Book
359, [1] p. : ill. (some col.) ; 22 x 28 cm.
British-born Edweard Muybridge (1830-1904), who emigrated to the United States in the 1850s, is one of the most influential photographers of all time. Best known for his series "Animal Locomotion", which as a book has never been out of print in some form since its first publication, he was the inventor of the zoopraxiscope, a method of projecting moving images that predated celluloid. He constantly pushed the limits of the camera's possibilities, creating vast panoramas of the American landscape, capturing the lives of its people and documenting the nation's rapidly growing cities. His dramatic life included extensive travels in North and South America, a career as a successful lecturer in Europe and standing trial for the murder of his wife's lover. This magnificent book places Muybridge's life in the context of one of the most transformative periods of American and European history. It features high quality tri-tone and 4-color illustrations of many of Muybridge's works, along with additional ephemera. Its thematic sections, written by leading authorities on the artist, unfold chronologically, examining Muybridge's engagement with the landscape of the American West; his documenting of the development of San Francisco; his giant plate landscape images of Yosemite; his chronicling of the last war against Native Americans; his attempts to find ways of photographing human beings and animals in motion, using multiple cameras and new technologies; and, his first experiments with moving images. Including a timeline and facsimiles of Muybridge's correspondence, this will become a standard reference for people interested in a variety of disciplines, including photography, film, animation, art history, science, technology, historical and contemporary art.

This collection includes original Muybridge glass plate negatives and prints, as well as modern day copy prints of his photographs. Original materials, 1872-1880, include images of the Stanfords' residences in Sacramento and San Francisco, other unidentified estates, and two printed cards from his horse in motion series, 1878. Images represented by copy prints include Canadian Pacific Railway, Indians, San Francisco, Oakland, and several Central America photographs. Also included in the collection is a set of glass slides, primarily of images included in this collection, probably assembled by Harry C. Peterson, former curator of the Stanford Museum.

These photographs from the CCA collection and other private and public collections document one of the supreme technical and conceptual achievements in the history of architectural photography. On July 14, 1877, Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904) announced in the "San Francisco Chronicle" the publication of a set of photographs, "Panorama of San Francisco from California Street Hill". It was available in two formats: as a set of albumen prints mounted on cabinet cards, and as an album of 11 albumen prints. Approximately one year later, Muybridge rephotographed the view, this time using a mammoth-plate camera. The result, a 360-degree panorama measuring more than 17 feet in length, was published as an album, comprising 13 albumen prints. This book documents Muybridge's panoramas of a now vanished San Francisco, and also discusses the antecedents of his work, thereby placing it within its historical context.

Eadweard Muybridge, one of the great pioneer-innovators of the 19th century, is a familiar figure to students of art history, photography, and cinema. Best known for the photographs of horses and other animals in motion that he made in the 1870s and '80s, Muybridge was the first person to use photography to freeze rapid action for analysis and study. He devised a method for photographing episodes of behavior using a series of cameras, producing some of the most famous sequential photographs ever made. These pictures, the first successful photographs of rapidly moving subjects, revolutionized expectations of what photography could reveal about the natural world, and ultimately led to the invention of the motion picture in the mid-1890s. Time Stands Still is the catalogue that accompanies a major exhibition celebrating Muybridge's fascinating work. Though the instantaneous photography movement stands as a crucial event in the progression of photography to motion pictures, this exhibition represents the first major organized treatment of the subject. Opening in spring 2003 at the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University and touring through 2004, it combines an examination of the artist's career in motion photography with a survey of early attempts to photograph moving subjects. Guest curator Phillip Prodger is the primary author of the catalogue, but the book also includes a valuable essay covering cinema's earliest experiments by Tom Gunning, an acknowledged expert on early film from the University of Chicago. The exhibition will display Muybridge's zoopraxiscope and other equipment, drawings, ephemera, and photographs made from the invention of photography in the 1830s to the end of Muybridge's career, which culminated with the publication of his encyclopedic work, Animal Locomotion, in 1887. The photographs and objects are drawn largely from the collection of the Cantor Center and are supplemented with a selection of stop-action photographs from other private and public collections. Among those represented will be the work of Talbot, Rejlander, Maray, Eakins, Edison, the Lumiere Freres, and others.
