A new documentary, Exposing Muybridge, directed by Marc Shaffer shares the remarkable story of photography pioneer Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904). The English photographer born in Kingston-upon-Thames was influential to developments in motion-picture projection with his invention of the zoopraxiscope projector.

Numerous historians, photographers and Harry Potter actor Gary Oldman (a collector of Muybridge's works) feature in the documentary, providing insight into the impact this pivotal figure had on photography as a medium.
