Product description

Frustrated by his inability to harness the frenetic energy of a country on the brink of change, photographer Eadward Muybridge determines to pioneer a technology that will allow cameras to catch reality down to its most fleeting moments. But it isn't until he falls in love with Holly Hughes, a daring young dancer determined to bring women's rights to the forefront of American politics, that his desire to improve the instrument finds its animating reason: to catch Holly's beauty in motion. Inexorably, she becomes his obsession - leading to a love affair that is threatened by a rival's desire for Muybridge's technological expertise

Review quote

'The allure and the distinctiveness of the West resounds clearly in Robert J. Seidman's Moments Captured - it is a wonderful tribute: Muybridge is a hero of a Californian dream, his every misstep, in Seidman's telling, inspired by love' New Republic 'A sweeping historical novel - Seidman is at his best with meaty plot twists, and the tale gets more gripping in the second half when the crimes and betrayals begin piling up' Kirkus Reviews
