Photographer Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904), often termed the father of the motion picture, presented his iconic Animal Locomotion series in 1887. Encompassing thousands of photographs of humans and animals in motion, the series included more than 300 plates of nude men and women engaged in a variety of activities.
In the first sustained examination of these nudes and the remarkable success of their production, wide circulation, and reception, “Indecent Exposures” positions this revolutionary enterprise as central to crucial advancements of the modern era. This fascinating story is copiously illustrated, and includes many lesser-known photographs published here for the first time.
