This exhibition brings together the full range of Muybridge's art for the first time, and explores the ways in which he created and honed his remarkable images, which continue to resonate with artists today.

Having emigrated from Britain to the U. S. in the 1850s, Muybridge became one of the most influential photographers of all time. His world-famous images of animals and humans in motion pushed the possibilities of the camera to the limit, inspiring works as diverse as Marcel Duchamp's Nude Descending a Staircase to the 1999 film The Matrix and Philip Glass's opera The Photographer. Highlights on show include a seventeen-foot panorama of San Francisco and recreations of the zoopraxiscope in action.
