Eadweard Muybridge, In Motion

A man rides a galloping horse as seen in this series of photographs depicting motion. These images, taken by Eadweard Muybridge, demonstrated a then-contentious theory that all four legs of a horse left the ground when at full gallop. From a limited edition of 295.

Clothed Descending a Staircase No. 2 In an homage to Marcel Duchamp's masterpiece Nude Descending a Staircase No. 2 (itself inspired by Eadweard Muybridge's photographs), Eliot Elisofon photographed Duchamp performing the act himself in 1952, and used multiple exposures to mimick the artist's famous time-lapse-style painting.
