Minimalist Photos of Vintage Computers Restored to Their Original Glory

London-based photographer James Ball (aka Docubyte), who we first learned about on Core77, has a thing for vintage computers. Ball went behind the scenes at the UK’s National Museum of Computing, the Science Museum in the UK, Germany’s Technical Collections of Dresden, and California’s Computer History Museum to capture the collections in all their knobby and bleep-bloop glory. Production studio INK digitally retouched the images to return them to their original form with minimalist flair and a pop of color. See the IBM 1401, Alan Turing’s Pilot ACE, and other vintage lovelies in Ball’s Guide to Computing series in our gallery.
