Francis Joseph Bruguiere was born in San Francisco in 1879. He came to London from the USA already known as a photographer and with one completed film Danse Macabre 1922, made with Dudley Murphy, Fernand Leger's collaborator on Ballet Mecanique 1924. He died in London in 1945.
In the late 1920s, Francis Bruguiere exhibited photographic works based on dramatically lit cut and folded paper shapes, some figurative, some abstract. Light Rhythms is a strictly abstract film which added new dimensions to these shapes: moving light-sources, a scheme of superimpositions, and the elements of time and music.
