Albert Londe . . . and yes I've gone academic on you today

Albert Londe (1858-1917) was a French photographer hired by Dr. Charcot in 1878 to photograph a variety of motion studies, musculature studies, and some useful, but sometimes disturbing, photos of a variety of neurological and psychiatric disorders.  A contemporary of Muybridge and Maret, Londe ranks with them among the pioneers of this branch of academic photography.
