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.
