25 of 28 people found the following review helpful By DJ Rix on November 25, 1999
Format: Paperback
Muybridge's seemingly artless photography sequences are one of the great wonders of photography, fascinating & humorous. How else could one react to a series of photos showing a nude woman stepping on to a chair to pour cold water on to another? Or to two young men playing leap frog?

Here are rather average bodies - by contemporary standards - throwing baseballs, kneeling & turning, heaving rocks, crawling, descending stairs, walking, running, carrying buckets, attempting a somersault while a pigeon crosses the path. The backgrounds of graphs & lines not only provide the artist's units of measurement, but establish a visual continuity more modern than he could have known.

The Male and Female Figure in Motion is a classic collection, beautifully produced & inexpensively priced. Great for artists & lovers of photography, this volume is part of Dover Publication's Pictorial Archive series, which means you are free to use them in your arts & crafts or post them on web pages. Dover also offers a companion collection of Muybridge's important animal locomotion photographs.

Its all covered in "The Human Figure in Motion". If you want Muybridge, may as well get a more comprehensive volume, eh?

Excellent to learn how to draw human figure in all its postures. Would recommend it for animators and artists of all kinds

Format: Paperback
This book is a superb collection of still photos taken from films of various men, women and children doing just about any action one could think of. Extremely helpful for an artist, illustrator or animator as it provides a range of views of people in motion.
Strongly recommended.
