Statesboro resident Stephanie Tames is the daughter of New York Times photographer George Tames, who made many iconic photographs while covering the White House for the New York Times.
George Tames walked into the White House with a 10th grade education, an ego that set him equal to every occasion, a camera and an eye for telling a story. Working more than 40 years as a Washington, D.C., photographer for the New York Times, Tames photographed 10 presidents, who allowed him access to private moments as well as official encounters. A selection of the images is now on display at the Averitt Center for the Arts.
