MEGHANN RIEPENHOFF | Muybridge Tides
SELECTED WORKS CV PRESS EXHIBITION VIEWS BIO
Muybridge Tides series respond to the work of a historical figure in photography. Eadweard Muybridge’s photographic
studies of motion changed our understanding of human movement, and of movement in the world around us. Emulating his stop-motion series of broken images, Riepenhoff rapidly submerged small pieces of cyanotype paper at shorelines, tracking moments in tides and currents. Made at a variety of sites in North America and Europe, each piece functions like a fingerprint of its place of origin.
