Harold Edgerton also known as the man who froze time was electrical engineer and a photographer.Edgerton received a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the university of Nebraska ( 1925 ) then later received a masters and a doctoral degree in the same field, but this time from Massachusetts Institute of Technology He would play around with flash tubes and then produced a tube using xenon gas.His flash was able to photograph actions of things. His work showcased in many books and exhibited in places and as he grew more known lots of people started approaching him like scientists and businessmen.

This is my favorite piece from him because you can see the action the eggs breaking.
