Étienne -Jules Marey (1830 - 1904) was a renowned French scientist, physiologist, researcher and chronophotographer. His work was significant in the development of cardiology, physical equipment, aviation, cinematography and the science of laboratory photography.
Unlike the motion studies of Eadweard Muybridge, who depicted movement as a series of discrete moments on separate, sequential negatives, Marey's analyses of motion are characterized by multiple exposures on a single photographic plate. He is widely considered to be a pioneer of photography and an influential precursor of the history of cinema.
