Description

Louis Le Prince (1842-1890) developed a 16 lens camera in 1886 which took a series of pictures using 16 independent shutters. In 1888 he worked in Leeds where he shot and projected street scenes. Le Prince mysteriously disappeared around 1890, leaving the Lumiere brothers to become the first people to find a workable method of projecting moving pictures in 1895.
