On 26 February 2019 Hans Christian Adam held a lecture on the life and work of Muybridge, from his early thinking about anatomy and movement to his latest photographic experiments. It focused on Muybridge’s main published work, consisting of 781 gravure printed plates in a portfolio titled Animal Locomotion (1887), prepared under the auspices of the University of Pennsylvania. In addition, Muybridge’s extremely rare, first illustrated album The Attitude of Animals in Motion (1881) was be subject of this talk on Muybridge, the man who made pictures running.
