Harold Edgerton photographed many sports figures at high speed in an effort to capture instances of familiar actions. Here, in 1934, one of his graduate students aims a bow and is captured at the moment that the just-released bowstring pinches his arm. Later sessions show the student wearing a forearm protector.
