EN: Chronophotography


A method of analysing movement by taking a series of still pictures at regular intervals. It was pioneered separately by Etienne-Jules Marey and Eadweard Muybridge among others from the early 1870s. In 1877 Muybridge was able to confirm by chronophotography Marey s assertion that a horse lifted all four hooves off the ground at once when trotting.
