A golfer, shot at flashes per second, swings his driver into an Archimedian spiral. Pictures of fencers, tennis players, rope-skippers and ping-pong enthusiasts, all caught in action sequences, call to mind futurist paintings with their frantic sequences of motion.
Edgerton's inventions for underwater photography have yielded such marvels as his photo of the top of a lava mountain thousands of feet below the ocean's surface. His picture of Stonehenge, taken from a night-flying plane, brings the eerie stone slabs to life.

Stopping Time : Hrsg. v. Gus Hayafas. Text v. Estelle Jussim
Harold E. Edgerton was a wizard of invention who changed the way people see things. The flash of his camera opened up hidden worlds of motion: of golf clubs flattening apparently rigid balls, of drops of milk forming crowns of splattered droplets, of beetles firing seemingly fluid secretions in what turned out to be rapid pulses. His photographs revealed the drama hidden in the commonplace.
The Man Who Stopped Time and Opened Worlds
Now in Paperback "The practice of photography as we know it today would be all but inconceivable were it not for the remarkable innovations of Harold Edgerton. This great classic, first published in and now back in print in paperback, celebrates Edgerton's genius and his lasting influence on photography. More than superbly reproduced plates illustrate the phenomenal range of his work, and Edgerton himself describes his efforts to capture the world in microseconds. Prizewinning author and photography historian Estelle Jussim discusses his profound legacy, and commentaries accompanying each plate explain the techniques used to create these exceptional images.
Poetry of Physics: Dr. Harold Edgerton’s Time Stopping Strobe Photography
Every time you use the flash on your smartphone or camera, you should give silent praise to Harold Eugene Edgerton. He was the first man to harness electricity to freeze time to an instant. But Edgerton took his pictures in the days of analogue, recording them on a motion picture camera converted to shoot at previously impossible speeds, and lighting them with an electric flash he invented himself. Intricate geometries happening so fast the human eye is incapable of comprehending them were suddenly captured for all to marvel at. Harold Edgerton's knack for invention created the electronic flash - allowing even the incredible speed of a bullet to be frozen in place.
