    sfmoma:Eadweard J. Muybridge, pioneer of motion photography and Google Doodle recipient, was so unique that he couldn’t stick with his given name, Edward.  And that was long before the days of Metta World Peace (Ron Artest) and Lady Gaga (Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta).

  7. Notes: 262 / 2 years ago  from 3rdofmay
    3rdofmay:The art: Carleton Watkins, A Chinese Man Sitting at a Table, undated, though likely 1860s-1880s. From the album “San Francisco Views,” which features more photographs of San Francisco’s Chinatown than any other single neighborhood.
The news: “The End of Chinatown,” by Bonnie Tsui in December’s The Atlantic.

The source: Collection of the Bancroft Library at the University of California, Berkeley, via Calisphere. 
Related: America’s first great Chinatown was in San Francisco. Both Eadweard Muybridge and especially Watkins loved to photograph it, perhaps because it was different, even exotic. I’ll feature another Watkins later today.
