Brian Clegg at the British Library

The man who stopped time: Eadweard Muybridge – pioneer photographer, father of cinema and murderer
Monday 1 February 2010, 18.30 – 20.00

Conference Centre, British Library. Price: £6 / £4 concessions. Book now.

“Muybridge’s work is iconic: his stop-motion pictures of boxers, wrestlers and, most famously, racehorses frozen in time are some of the most famous images in the history of photography. His personal story is no less extraordinary, from the English suburbs to adventure in the American West and from passionately driven technological breakthroughs to treachery, betrayal and murder.

Brian Clegg, journalist and author presents this astounding story, with unique animations of Muybridge images created by Marek Pytel.”

A talk to coincide with the free exhibition Points of View: Capturing the 19th Century in Photographs, open now, until Sunday 7 March 2010.
