Guide to Computing

Award-winning production studio INK has collaborated with photographer Docubyte on Guide to Computing, a new photographic series that explores the never-before-seen history of the hardware we use every day. This colorful series of ten historic computers, created in close collaboration between INK and Docubyte, documents the beginning of our computing history. Featuring such famous machines as the IBM 1401 and Alan Turing’s Pilot ACE, Guide to Computing showcases a minimalist approach to design. 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 color photography, Guide to Computing therefore showcases them in a never before seen context.
