Moments of Vision
The Stroboscopic Revoltion in Photography
Moments of Vision recounts Harold Edgerton's remarkable achievements in stroboscopy and electronic flash photography. It contains nearly two hundred photographs, including twelve pages in color, of many of the pioneer and classic images first published by Edgerton and Killian in Flash (1938) as well as numerous recent works by Edgerton and others using his stroboscopic inventions. Here are the famous milk drops, athletes and dancers in motion, bullets in transit, and hummingbird in flight-all made possible by the MIT scientist-engineer who pioneered the methods now widely used in stop-motion, night, and underwater photography.
