MOMENTS CAPTURED is a mesmerizing story roughly based on the life and career of pioneering photographer Eadweard Muybridge during the late nineteenth-century San Francisco. Throughout the novel, Seidman takes liberties with the chronology of the famed photographer’s career, omitting or inventing characters in his circle in order to explore certain truths about human nature that the facts, alone, may not have revealed.
