Étienne-Jules Marey: sports footage

From 1880, Étienne-Jules Marey also copied the movement phases of sporting actions into a single image. He later took series of photographs and later also films that reproduced the respective movement. At the 1900 Olympic Games in Paris, he captured what he himself called the "best athletes" in certain disciplines. The purpose of his recordings was to inform those who would train future athletes. The analytical image of real sport served as a model for future sport. A visual training theory began, which today culminates in self-monitoring via the cameras of a cell phone, for example.
