Moving Skip Rope

Moving Skip Rope, Harold Edgerton, 1952, black-and-white photograph, 6 1/4 x 9 3/4 inches.

By synchronizing strobe flashes with the motion being examined (for example, the spinning of engine rotors), then taking a series of photos through an open shutter at the rate of many flashes per second, Edgerton invented ultra-high-speed and stop-action photography (1931).
