Muybridge in Alaska: 1868 Receives State Grant
The Alaska Humanities Forum has awarded Inside Out Media a grant to support Muybridge in Alaska: 1868, an unprecedented exhibition of original Muybridge views of Alaska. Taken by Muybridge in August 1868, these are the earliest photographs of Tlingit people, of Southeast Alaska, and are the first of the territory to be widely seen. Muybridge in Alaska: 1868 will go on display at the Alaska Native Heritage Center in Anchorage beginning in January 2019, followed by the Alaskan towns of Haines and Sitka in the spring and summer.

Splitting the Second is now Exposing Muybridge
We have renamed our documentary and virtual reality project Exposing Muybridge, retiring our original working title, Splitting the Second. We can’t promise we won’t rename the project one last time as we got closer to release (still a long ways down the road), but we like Exposing Muybridge for its reference to photography, to Muybridge’s penchant for getting naked in front of the camera, for the inclusion of “Muybridge” in the title, and because it captures our mission to reveal a deeper meaning to Muybridge’s life and work, one that says as much about us as it does about him. Tell us what you think by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Muybridge in Alaska: 1868. Unprecedented Exhibit of Original Muybridge Stereo Views Receives Major Grant
Through the extraordinary generosity of a private collector, we are mounting an unprecedented exhibit of original Muybridge stereograms of Alaska to travel to various museums across the state. Muybridge’s photographs are the first of Tlingit people, and of the Anglos who settled or were stationed in SE Alaska. They are among Muybridge’s earliest work. This summer will mark the 150th anniversary of the making of these historic images that capture Alaska at the dawn of a new American age. We are pleased to announce that the Atwood Foundation has awarded us a major grant to support the creation of the exhibit. For more information, or if you would like to help, contact Marc Shaffer: 510-468-4610
