One of the foundational images of motion capture, Etienne Jules Marey, chronophotographs from "The Human Body in Action," Scientific American (1914). By this time Marey had migrated from pure photography to abstraction, where strips of highly reflective material were applied to the limbs of a subject otherwise draped in black, so only the key elements of motion were registered. The checkerboard allowed speed to be measured by also capturing a clock.

Photos Capture the Uncontrollable Motion of Dancing

The Fusion of Dance and Motion Capture  Asphyxia is an experimental film project directed by Maria Takeuchi and Frederico Phillips. Artists explore human movement through motion capture technology. The team used two Xbox Kinect sensor to capture the movements of the dancer Shiho Tanaka then rendered the data produced in a photo-realistic environment.

Dancer in Motion: Each photograph is a composed capture of 10,000 images of a brief instant of one dancer in the nude.  Japanese photographer, Shinichi Maruyama, teamed up with choreographer, Jessica Lang, to create photos that encapsulate every granular moment of a nude dancer’s motion.
