Robert at Bat


These three batting frames really show off Robert Glendenning's musculature.  
Enlarge them if you can and then take a look at his handsome portrait below:

  1. Given the technology of the times, it's amazing how clearly his muscles actually show. We're these taken outdoors, do you know?

    1. From what I've seen they were taken in an outdoor compound. There is one sequence with a pigeon in shot.

  2. Still so beautiful. These handsome muscular men immortalised by Muybridge's work. I do hope that they were proud of them. Widely circulated, thousands would have seen these naked men.

    1. Some of the models do look proud in the photos, and some were known to have said so later in life. One who died at an early age was given an additional bit of immortality when his wealthy brother commissioned a statue based on one of his nude Muybridge photos.
