Early High-Speed Photographs Offer Incredible Details of Motion #arttuesday

Edgerton6

This piece from Hyperallergic highlights the work of Dr. Harold Edgerton, an MIT Professor who took early high speed photographs using strobe flash technology he developed:

Dr. Harold Edgerton: Abstractions, which opened last month, has photographs with exposure times up to 1/1,000,000 of a second — a speed that turns a tennis player’s serve into a fan of rackets and the layers of smoke from a bullet into a frozen duo of clouds hovering by the barrel. Edgerton, who passed away in 1990, was obsessed with the “experience of seeing the unseen,” as he called it, extending his photographic experimentation into aerial night reconnaissance during World War II with high-powered strobe lights and later collaborating with Jacques-Yves Cousteau on techniques for documenting the ocean floor. The Edgerton Center at MIT, where he was a professor, carries on his legacy in researching high-speed and scientific imaging.
