The first sustained examination of these ground-breaking studies of the nude figure in motion and the remarkable success of their production, wide circulation, and reception. Muybridge’s nudes ushered in new attitudes toward science and progress, including Darwinian ideas about human evolution and hierarchy; debates over the role of photography and scientific investigation in art; and offered innovative perspectives on the human body. This fascinating story is copiously illustrated, and includes many lesser-known photographs published here for the first time.
Indecent Exposures positions this revolutionary enterprise as central to crucial advancements of the modern era.
