Yosemite in Time: Ice Ages, Tree Clocks, Ghost Rivers
Mark Klett (Photographer)

October 2005
Hardcover

From Booklist
A place of dramatic natural beauty frozen in time in a pristine state in the photographs of Eadweard Muybridge and Ansel Adams, Yosemite is emblematic of the grandeur of the American West. But with its vast granite expanses, Yosemite is an open book recording the passage of geological time, and naturally it has changed since John Muir sang its praises. To discern how, and to more fully understand its powerful mythos, three visionaries join forces in this innovative inquiry. Rebecca Solnit, the author of five highly original books, including River of Shadows: Eadweard Muybridge and the Technological Wild West (2003), supplies the mind-expanding commentary, musing in her inimitable fashion on the nexus of nature, art, science, and everyday experience. Acclaimed photographers Mark Klett and Byron Wolfe practice the...

From Publishers Weekly
In the 1870s, at a racetrack built by railroad baron Leland Stanford, Eadweard Muybridge invented high-speed photography. With his camera, he cut time into fractions of a second and laid it out in slices. Never before had human eyes seen a trotting horse distinctly, and the photographs astounded horsemen and artists, especially when Muybridge set the film in motion and the horse reeled fluidly across the screen. Today it is difficult to understand the pictures' impact, but 2001 NBCC finalist Solnit (As Eve Said to the Serpent) vividly recreates the wonder that greeted those primitive movies. Although she points her lens at Muybridge, her true subject is the perceptual revolution of the 19th century when the railroad, the telegraph and the camera transformed the experience of space and time. English-born Muybridge...

Time Stands Still: Muybridge and the Instantaneous Photography Movement
Phillip Prodger

March 2003
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Early photography innovator Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904; he went by an assortment of names and alternative spellings) is primarily known for his photographic series of animals in motion, begun in the 1870s, that led to cinematography. Not a biography, this catalogue to a touring exhibition is instead both a critical overview of Muybridge's aesthetic achievements in photography and an engaging history of the instantaneous photography movement, a set of innovations that swept away the excruciatingly long exposure-times of then-conventional photography, and of which Muybridge's motion studies were a part. St. Louis Art Museum assistant curator Prodger makes an excellent selection of photographs, from the first known "snapshot" of two women in a window (attributed to David E. James & Co., circa 1855) to Muybridge's...
