New Charles & Ray Eames: Stereo Photographs Eamescover.jpg (60602 bytes)

Now Available!

Charles and Ray Eames rank among the most important American designers of the twentieth century. Known for their groundbreaking contributions to architecture, furniture design, industrial design and manufacturing, and the photographic arts, they were enthusiastic hands-on explorers of new media. It is no surprise to learn that they experimented with stereo photography. 

These reels are definitely retro. Its kind of like looking at someone's old 1950s Realist slides but much more professional. There are three reels, one labeled 'furniture', one 'house' and the other 'more'. This set includes pictures of the Eames California house located in the Pacific Palisades. Most of the photos are taken in the late 1940s soon after the house was completed, but some are taken in the mid-1950s from the set of their film Sofa Compact. This featured their showroom arrangements.

Apparently Eames was a big Frank Lloyd Wright fan and even got kicked out of architecture school for his advocacy. The 21 full-color three-dimension photographs in this collection, taken by the Eameses themselves, touch on several areas of their work. Their innovative California house is seen soon after its completion in 1949, and the legendary showroom arrangements of their furniture exemplify their playful use of the photographic medium. Notes by Eames Demetrios summarize the life, career, and philosophy of the designers.
