    One thought on “Horses and Other Animals in Motion: 45 Classic Photographic Sequences”

    1. This belongs on the bookshelf of any artist who often finds themself drawing animals and is also recommended to any photography enthusiast or animal-lover.I believe Muybridge was the one to prove once and for all that when a horse is in full gallop, there is a point in the gait when all four feet are airborne. This has always fascinated me, and photographic evidence of the flying moment is displayed in this text.
