Much of contemporary visual culture can be traced directly to the work of Eadweard Muybridge, photographer and film pioneer. In Muybridge: The Eye in Motion, Stephen Barber analyses Muybridge's prodigious output principally through the photographer's own scrapbook, a multidimensional and unprecedented 'memory book' that was created in the final years of his life. Intended for readers and students of film and art history, this is the first-ever study focused directly on the relevance of Muybridge's work for contemporary digital cultures.
