Restored Legends of Computer History


Hübsche Fotoserie von James Ball mit alten Rechnern aus der IT-Steinzeit, die er mit jeder Menge Photoshop-Voodoo wie neu aussehen lässt: Guide To Computing.

Featuring such famous machines as the IBM 1401 and Alan Turing’s Pilot ACE, Guide to Computing showcases a minimalist approach to design that precedes even Apple’s contemporary motifs.

What’s more, the combination of Docubyte’s photography and INK’s skilful retouching and post-production techniques has resulted in something wholly unique: the ageing historical objects as photographed by Docubyte have been ‘digitally restored’ and returned to their original form. As a number of these computers predate modern colour photography, Guide to Computing therefore showcases them in a never before seen context.
