In the nineteenth century Eadweard Muybridge, Etienne Jules Marey, Ernst Mach (1838-1916), Ottomar Anschütz (1846-1907) and the American painter Thomas Eakins[1] all set out to capture sequences of images - each sharp on their own that would provide improved understanding of the nature of movement. Whilst others such as the Italian Antonio Giulio Bragaglia sought to capture the overall flow of movement in a single photograph.
 
In 1945 Alexey Brodovitch published the book Ballet that consisted of blurred dance photographs of the 'Ballets Russes de Monte Carlo' taken in the late 1930's. This was not a conventional ballet book because the intention was to capture movement.
 
Other masters of color photography, such as Ernst Haas in his appropriately called 'motion' series experimented in the overall flow but at the same time trapped the very essence of a bird in flight or a rodeo rider in a way that a fast shutter speed and sharp shot never could.

There are some photographers who dominate a particular style either by their early adoption of a technique or their mastery of how it is done. Ernst Haas in the 1950's experimented with how to capture motion with color film.[2]
