Wikipedia defines  chronophotography  as “a set of photographs of a moving object, taken for the purpose of recording and exhibiting successive phases of motion.” The term chronophotography was coined by French physicist Étienne-Jules Marey to describe photographs of movement from which measurements and study of motion could be derived. It is derived from the Greek word “chronos” (time), combined with photography.

Marey’s pioneering work in the field of chronophotography led directly to the development of cinematography.
