Found Photos Turned into a “Snap Motion” Animation

Cassandra C. Jones created the above tribute to Eadweard Muybridge’s horse motion studies by sifting through 5,000 digital photographs to find 12 that matched the frames in his study. Jones then looped the 12 images in an animation, resulting in a “snap motion” video of a horse galloping.

The photographs that are included in each Snap Motion Re-Animation come from around the world and are taken by different photographers. I collect them from friends, family, colleagues, acquaintances, strangers, stock photography agencies, photo exchanges, thrift stores, private collections, want adds, eBay and the public domain archives of the US Army, NOAA and NASA.

Update: This is very similar to the stop motion video Blipfoto made with thousands of photos of people in various countries.

    12 pictures makes it too repetitive.. it would have been nice to see it done with more…

  • Michael Zhang

    Good idea – it’d probably be feasible to do that as a community-generated effort:

    or perhaps with some computer program

  • John Dunne

    Has she secured the rights for all 12 images given they “come from around the world and are taken by different photographers”? I see no credits on any of her work.
