English-born photographer Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904) earned enduring fame as "the Father of Motion Pictures." Less well known is that a jury had acquitted him on a homicide charge, even though he freely acknowledged stalking and killing his unarmed victim. National Book Award-winning historian Edward Ball (Slaves in the Family) captures the brilliance of this enigmatic man in a narrative that one early reviewer called an "enlightening tale of power, the wedding of art and technology, and tragedy."
