Californian photographer Kevin Twomey creates masterpieces out of discarded and archaic tech accessories. His series of antique calculator portraits fascinates viewers and exhibits a great amount of detail.

While modern calculators are often found on one's smartphone, the mathematical devices of our past were a lot more complex. Kevin Twomey's antique calculator photo series is appropriately titled "Calculators" and features an intricate study of the devices' inner-workings.

The photographer's interest in a calculator's internal parts and mechanisms is highlighted in his latest series, resulting in imagery that resembles something out of a sci-fi film. Machines that resemble space-ships or large-scaled electrical devices are revealed to be disassembled calculators. Ultimately, these portraits prove that calculators are strangely fascinating when taken apart and examined.
