(1830-1904) a US photographer, born in England, who used a series of cameras to study the way both animals and humans move. He developed a way of showing series of pictures quickly one after the other to give the impression of continuous movement. He presented these to the public in a theatre in Chicago, which some people therefore regard as the first cinema.
