Muybridge & ruckenfigur

To London to see ‘Eadweard Muybridge’ at Tate Britain, 10th January 2011.  The exhibition includes three examples of rückenfigur: a figure with a gun beside a lake, in the Brandenburg Album; five figures, again looking out over a lake, Solalo (?), Guatemala, 1875; and the iconic picture of Muybridge perched on Contemplation Rock, Glacier Point, 1872.  Muybridge’s work includes other rather unsettling examples of rückenfigur not exhibited.
