Muybridge at Tate Britain…

For someone who isn’t a fan of horses, murderers or old men with big beards, I found the Eadweard Muybridge exhibition at Tate Britain over the weekend really amazing. I had to keep reminding myself that this mad genius created his art and science over a hundred years ago.

Highlights for me included his panoramic work covering San Francisco, and spotting some of his really random subjects doing really random things (there’s one set of photo’s detailing what Muybridge looked like naked while chopping wood… not a sight for the sqeemish).

This ends on the 16th of this month, and I really think you should check it out before then if you can- he was so ahead of his time!
