The Attic #7 Eadweard Muybridge

Hi! Ready for your monthly snippets of inspiration?


Here they go: a photographer who took pictures of subjects in motion, a saucy campaign, a charming sketch, an ad full of light, a colorful stamp from the 70s and a fun twitter thread.

A photographer: Eadweard Muybridge

Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904) was an English photographer known for his photographic studies of motion.

His most famous photograph is The Horse in Motion, a series of cabinet cards that show the movement of a horse.

I’m sharing him today because he photographed a lot of other subjects, and I think they can be a great and handy tool for illustrators and animators to use as reference 🙂

A campaign: Tadashi Ohashi for Kikkoman

An ad: マツダランプ

A sketch: Mon Oncle

A stamp: Arbor day

Asher KALDERON - 1975 - Arbor Day postage stamp from Israel

A collection: Still life ads

Jules GLASER - 1947 - Franck Aroma
