Visionary photographer gets his due

‘Helios: Eadweard Muybridge in a Time of Change’ at SFMOMA

Any doubt as to whether San Francisco could call the British-born photography innovator and visionary Eadweard Muybridge its own will be quickly dispelled by SFMOMA‘s latest exhibition, Helios: Eadweard Muybridge in a Time of Change. The show, which doubles as a primer on the history of photography and the history of late-19th-century California, whose development trajectories paralleled each other, is the first comprehensive retrospective of the staggering invention and lesser-known creative output of a multidisciplinary pioneer who advanced both the art and technology of modern photography.
