Kingston Museum will be

showing an exhibition of Eadweard Muybridge's work done using his

projection device the 'Zoopraxiscope' from 18 September 2010.

Eadweard Muybridge, born

in Kingston, was one of the pioneers of photography. He did important

work on human and animal locomotion. His Zoopraxiscope was one of the

first machines ever capable of capturing moving images, and Kingston

Museum has about 70 discs of his work. He emigrated to the US in the

1850s where he did a lot of his work.

The

exhibition Muybridge Revolutions runs until 12 February

2011 at:

Kingston Museum,

Wheatfield Way,

Kingston upon Thames KT1 2PS

The museum is open

daily 10am-5pm, except Wednesday and Sunday.  Admission is free.

There is also an exhibition of his work at the

Tate Britain from 8 September 2010 to 16 January 2011.
