Ed Westcott (born 1922) is a photographer who worked for the U.S. government in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, during the Manhattan Project and the Cold War. As one of the few people permitted to have a camera in the Oak Ridge area during the Manhattan Project, he created the main visual record of the construction and operation of the Oak Ridge production facilities and of civilian life in the enclosed community of Oak Ridge.

Here, Ed poses with his motion picture cameras and lights in Building 2714 in in Oak Ridge, in 1960. (via)
