Today’s Google Doodle pays tribute to Eadweard J. Muybridge.

Today marks the 182nd anniversary of the birth of Eadweard J. Muybridge, the British photographer known for his pioneering work on animal locomotion. Google celebrates his birth with a doodle of his photos taken at the Palo Alto Stock Farm in Stanford, California. Titled “Sallie Gardner at a Gallop”, the series of photos shows that horses’ hooves do all leave the ground simultaneously. This series of photos stands as one of the earliest forms of videography. Isn’t it amazing that 134 years later it’s a Google Doodle!
