In the dead of night in 1875, just after being acquitted for the murder of his wife's lover, the enigmatic Eadweard Muybridge boarded the Pacific Mail Steamship Company's vessel The Honduras. He temporarily took on the name Eduardo Santiago Muybridge and spent a year photographing all along the Central American Pacific Coast with particular emphasis given to his travels in Guatemala and Panamá.
This presentation will introduce some of these exceptionally rare photographs and will include animated diagrams, illustrations, and rephotographs. It will emphasize the discoveries made during the investigation of his highly modified and interpretive imagery including a discussion about the implications and conclusions that can be drawn from this little-known body of work.
