36 Realistically Colorized Historical Photos Make the Past Seem Incredibly Real
A new artistic trend has broken out around the world which changes our perception of history dramatically. Colorizing historic photographs from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s changes their appearance from something historic and different, into a scene from today. The colorful image of Albert Einstein sitting beside the water gives us an entire new perspective on the genius. He goes from a brilliant historic relic, into a living brilliance of our era. The colorized photograph of Audrey Hepburn transforms our thoughts of beauty. Her photo goes from an intriguing historic photo to one of a sexy starlet of today. Historic events move forward decades, or even a full century, by the addition of color carefully planned and applied by artists like Jordan Lloyd, Dana Keller, and Sanna Dullaway.
You can see a wider selection of colorized photographs that redefine our look at history in the “Colorized Photographs” book available on Amazon for under $30.
