It’s easy to forget about pioneers.
Today, video is ubiquitous but it owes everything to the early groundbreaking work of artists like Eadweard Muybridge. Commissioned by SFMoMa, Kalakala Animation created a collection of short documentaries that tell the stories of five pioneering photographers: Eadweard Muybridge, Julia Margaret Cameron, Man Ray, Carlton Watkins, and Henry Fox Talbot.
Kalakala produced another short film about Eadweard Muybridge that more fully delves into the mind behind the modern motion picture. Watch it here
