Photographer Kevin Twomey showed us how technology dramatically changed in just 60 years. The complexity of these old calculators is uncomparable with the tiny microprocessors that we are used to. These machines have lots of gears, wheels, pulleys, all working together like a well-directed orchestra.
In this Photoshoot Twomey will show us the inside of these amazing machines. This project started when Mark Glusker, a mechanical engineer and collector of old calculators, asked Twomey to photograph his collection. “The stripping of the external shell of the calculators was not the original concept for shooting these machines,” Twomey tells, “but when Mark removed the covers to show the complex internal working of the calculators, I immediately knew that this was the heart of the project.”
