Book summary

Doc Edgerton, who developed the electronic flash and devoted his life to helping us "see the unseen," felt his photographic work was the byproduct of scientific investigation. The fact that the world is no longer amazed at many of the images he produced is testament to the impact his experiments have had on our culture. Douglas Collins captures the Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor in a biographical essay as sharply as Edgerton captured a coronet of milk. This image--along with such sensational stop-motion studies as a dancer in mid-flight, a bullet slicing through a playing card, a child running and a cock fight--may be viewed on the accompanying portfolio photo CD-ROM.
