Muybridge Wrestlers

Eadweard Muybridge did several of his motion studies using wrestling models, and that it the theme for Tuesday.  We start with an image that really shows off some fine musculature.


  1. Houlala, le monsieur projeté en l'air a une raie fessière très poilue, j'adore!!!
    Houlala, the gentleman thrown in the air has a very hairy buttock line, I love it !!!

  2. A truly remarkable and sharp capture considering the relatively slow film at the time. As you say fine musculature. These stunning men from the 19th century still thrill us today. Oh have been there...or taken part..
