cat falls, 1890

√Čtienne-Jules Marey (1830-1904) was a pioneering French chronophotographer, or movement photographer; that was the precursor to cinematography. He's best known, perhaps, for the studies he made of birds and and mammals in motion. . .

. . . including this proof that cats do indeed always land upon their feet.
