I am currently obsessed with the photographs of Eadweard Muybridge - coined the Father of the Motion Picture and known for his ground-breaking work in the 1870's. His rapid action photography of all things in motion pushed the limits of early photography. As the creator of the Zoopraxiscope, he was quite a force to be reckoned with. This extended beyond photography. Upon discovering that his wife had a lover, he sought out the culprit with the following words, "Good evening, Major, my name is Muybridge, and here's the answer to the letter you sent my wife". He then promptly killed the Major with a single gunshot. In court, he pleaded insanity due to a blow to the head in a stagecoach accident!
