You might have seen some of these colorized photos on the internet. Mark Twain, Amelia Earhart, a young Charlie Chaplin. It’s incredible how normal these people look because they’re no longer in black and white. Like they’re someone you could pass by on the street and not someone unreachable or from another time.
Photo colorization artists use a combination of research, physics, and technology to digitally reconstruct history’s black and white record.
What I love about these photos is that they show people and moments in history that have never been seen in color — except by those who were actually there.
