Frustrated by his inability to harness the frenetic energy of a country on the brink of change, photographer Eadweard Muybridge determines to pioneer a technology that will allow cameras to catch reality down to its most fleeting moments. But it isnt until he falls in love with Holly Hughes, a daring young dancer determined to bring womens rights to the forefront of American politics, that his desire to improve the instrument finds its animating reason: to catch Hollys beauty in motion. Inexorably, she becomes his obsession leading to a love affair that is threatened by a rivals desire for Muybridges technological expertise.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The allure and the distinctiveness of the West resounds clearly in Robert J. Seidmans Moments Captured it is a wonderful tribute: Muybridge is a hero of a Californian dream, his every misstep, in Seidmans telling, inspired by love * New Republic *
A sweeping historical novel Seidman is at his best with meaty plot twists, and the tale gets more gripping in the second half when the crimes and betrayals begin piling up * Kirkus Reviews *
