This fantastic evocative image is by the master of Italian Photojournalism- Federico Patellani (1911-1977). Entitled 'Calcolatori Elettronici' (Electronic Calculators) and dated 1968 it depicts a man working at the console of a Sperry-Rand Univac III computer. Considered one of the most important Italian photographers of the 20th Century, Patellani's natural ability as a photographic storyteller earned him international acclaim and by the end of his life his images were in demand among the very best media agencies. As a photographer Patellani was always happy to push the boundaries of experimentation to assist his narrative, and this manipulated image of the Computer worker is a great example of that approach. It encapsulates perfectly the noisy buzz and energy of the scene, and also offers a comment about society's view of computers at the time. This is a special image for anyone wanting to encapsulate the excitement of early computing by one of the masters of the photographic craft.
