§ Muybridge first emigrated to the US in 1855. After a stagecoach accident he returned to England to recuperate. While there, he learned photography and the wet-collodion process.
§ In 1866, Muybridge came back to San Francisco. He first photographed landscapes, architecture and portraiture under the name Helios.
§ In 1872, Muybridge was hired by California Governor Leland Stanford to determine if horses have all their hooves off the ground during a trot.
§ Around 1874, Muybridge was acquitted for the murder of his wife’s lover as justifiable homicide. Stanford assisted with Muybridge’s legal expenses.
§ In 1877, Muybridge proved his horse theory using a series of large cameras placed in a line triggered by thread as the horse passed. This lead to his continued motion study photography and the creation of the Zoopraxiscope.
§ In 1887, Muybridge published his work in Animal Locomotion: An Electro-Photographic Investigation of Consecutive Phases of Animal Movements.
