Charles Eames


Charles and Ray Eames used photography as they did their films, to better understand the product, the project, the situation at hand, and then to see if their understanding of it changed with each photograph.  Close looking from every angle -- what Eames Demetrios wrote in his book, An Eames Primer, as "Charles and Ray took quite seriously the lessons learned from Eliel and Eero Saarinen of trying something out over and over."
