“Doc” Edgerton’s High Speed Motion Studies

High-speed cinematography was the key to “Doc” Edgerton’s remarkable series of motion studies, begun in the 1930’s. This much loved M.I.T. professor was the 20th Century Muybridge in his invention of the stroboscope which he used for studying the motions of life. The high speed study Milkdrop is an absolute wonder.

Dramatically lit against a black background one sees the white droplet slowly descend, the first splash and crown, and a secondary column splash ending with a “slow” undulating settlement of the milk. All 90 pictures of the original makes for a large, wondrous flipbook. (2″ by 5″, 90 pages)
