I did a variation of Eadweard Muybridge's "The Horse in Motion", but instead of studying the motion of a horse, I broke down the motion of people's reactions to a photo op. I went to Washington Square Park and asked strangers if I could take a posed photo of them. Instead of taking the photograph, I recorded a short video of them getting into the photo op position and midway through the video, took a snapshot.

I did a variation of Eadweard Muybridge's "The Horse in Motion", but instead of studying the motion of a horse, I broke down the motion of people's reactions to a photo op. I went to Washington Square Park and asked strangers if I could take a posed photo of them (whatever they deem to be the most flattering position for themselves). Instead of taking the photograph, I recorded a short video of them getting into the photo op position and midway through the video, took a snapshot. I then broke down the frames leading up to the photo op pose to examine how people change depending on whether they know a camera is on them or not.
