"Doc" Edgerton's High Speed Motion Studies
High-speed cinematography was the key to Doc Edgertons remarkable series of motion studies, begun in the 1930s. This much loved M.I.T. professor was the 20th Century Muybridge in his invention of the stroboscope which he used for studying the motions of life. The high speed study
is an absolute wonder. Dramatically lit against a black background one sees the white droplet slowly descend, the first splash and crown, and a secondary column splash ending with a slow undulating settlement of the milk. All 90 pictures of the original makes for a large, wondrous flipbook. (2" by 5", 90 pages)
