ruzuzu commented on the word Harold Edgerton
Known for the invention of electronic flash photography--he took many photographs of bullets piercing fruit.
"The origin of strobe lighting dates to 1931, when Harold Eugene "Doc" Edgerton employed a flashing lamp to make an improved stroboscope for the study of moving objects, eventually resulting in dramatic photographs photographs of objects such as bullets in flight."
