Kingston University and the Royal Borough of Kingston join forces to bring historic Muybridge collection back to borough

A highly significant collection of work by pioneering photographer Eadweard Muybridge is to be brought back to his home town thanks to a partnership between Royal Borough of Kingston and Kingston University.

The unique material is part of the Victorian photographer's own personal collection, which he bequeathed to Kingston Museum on his death. It includes 67 of Muybridge's famous zoopraxiscope discs, which enabled him to create projected moving images, more than 2,000 glass lantern slides which he presented in his extensive international lectures, and 150 collotype prints, a type of printing that preserves fine detail. It forms part of Kingston Museum's Muybridge Collection, one of the largest worldwide. A selection of the trailblazing photographer's work is displayed at the museum, but much of the collection is currently stored out of borough....
