Public Lectures at the Rose Theatre, Kingston, 2008.
Two world-class thinkers discuss the life and work of Kingston-born Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904). Muybridge led a fascinating and varied life; innovative photographer and artist, celebrated inventor, international public speaker and obsessive Victorian eccentric. He undertook the most exhaustive study into human and animal locomotion ever conducted, which remains a valuable artistic and scientific resource to this day. Muybridge left his personal equipment, photographs, glass plates and related ephemera to the Royal Borough of Kingston, held at Kingston Museum and Archive. The full extent of Muybridge's continued influence on the worlds of art, science and cinematography deserves further study and this new collaborative partnership between Kingston University and the Royal Borough of Kingston aims to further much needed research into Kingston's prestigious Muybridge Bequest. Venue: Rose Theatre, Kingston, 24-6 High Street, Kingston KT1 1HL

Painting (Claudia Shepard):
Aviva Kramer and Claudia Shepard "Essences", Au Courant Interior Design Studio/Gallery, Ferndale, MI, (USA) September 11 - October 2, 2004.

'Claudia Shepard is known for her exquisite, lush large scale paintings of dresses and smaller, figurative work often referencing Edweard Muybridge's photographs that first truly captured people in motion. This show displays that figurative work. We see nude figures leaping, wrestling, frozen in action. Her dresses do make a cameo appearance worn by figures dancing. Shepard brings out an emotional quality to the work, not so much through the content, as these are almost entirely devoid of a specific narrative - they depict simply a figure in motion against an anonymous backdrop, allowing the viewer to bring to the imagery what story they wish. This emotional quality comes to the surface through her use of a richly warm palette. There's an intensity to the paint, even while the figure is frozen in space. In that regard, while the works are certainly figurative, they carry this other level of information in the way more abstract works might. The color is never accidental: warm, orange-toned figures leap forth against a cold, blue, tangible but not graspable background.' [text and image used with permission]

Catching the Action - Muybridge and the Chronophotographers, London, 1992.

Moving times with Muybridge, New Scientist, 25 April 1992 by ELISABETH GEAKE. Issue 1818.
The Museum of the Moving Image in London goes right back to the origins of the cinema in a special exhibition, Muybridge and the Chronophotographers. Eadweard Muybridge was well established as a photographer by the 1870s ... The Illustrated London News of 18 March 1882 commented: 'Had Muybridge exhibited his zoopraxiscope three hundred years ago, he would have been burnt for a wizard.' The exhibition also shows how Muybridge's pioneering work was developed by people such as Etienne-Jules Marey and Louis Le Prince, who began using paper film instead of glass negatives, and the Lumiere Brothers who used perforated film. It is absorbing and informative, considerably enlivened by the details of Muybridge's eccentric life, including the story of how he killed his wife's lover and got away with it.
