Helios: Eadweard Muybridge in a Time of Change

Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904) was a brilliant, eccentric photographer, who gained worldwide fame photographing animal and human movement imperceptible to the human eye. A retrospective of Muybridge’s work currently on view at the SFMOMA is the first to examine the full scope of Muybridge's vision and his pivotal role in the creative transformation of 19th-century culture. The British-born Muybridge began his artistic career in the 1860s in California — then as now a fertile ground for innovation — and his images vividly capture a rapidly changing West. Bringing together hundreds of photographs and other objects made between 1858 and 1893, the exhibition offers a panoramic view of Muybridge's work within the landscape of his times.

Arader Galleries also has a fine collection of Muybridge’s photographs: the top image is a series of a bird in motion from his famous Animal Locomotion series, the bottom is a detail of a panorama of San Francisco dated 1877. Please contact Arader Galleries with any questions about these fascinating and historically important photographs.
