Etienne -Jules Marey (1830 - 1904) was a renowned French scientist, physiologist, researcher, and chronophotography. His work was significant in the development of cardiology, physical equipment, aviation, cinematography, and the science of laboratory photography.
Unlike the motion studies of Eadweard Muybridge, who depicted movement as a series of discrete moments on separate, sequential negatives, Marey's analyses of motion are characterized by multiple exposures on a single photographic plate. He is widely considered to be a pioneer of photography and an influential precursor of the history of cinema.
This flipbook features 6 of his most famous studies, such as "Le Vol du Héron" or the “Falling Cat” (1894). You can switch between the different sequences by placing your thumb at the upper, middle, or lower edge of each side of the flipbook.
