UK photographer James Ball (a.k.a. “Docubyte“) recently teamed up with INK Studio to create the Guide to Computing, a colorful photo series of computers throughout history that have a minimalist approach to design. The entire collection of photos are available to view on Behance and the INK Studio website.
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.
