COLORIZING HISTORY’S REMAINS

Colorized-Historical-Photos-17

Artists including Jordan Lloyd, Dana Keller, and Sanna Dullaway have taken historical documentation to a whole new level — altering the past, but in a way that brings it to the present. This collection of altered historical photos includes the likes of Albert Einstein and Audrey Hepburn amongst a plethora of other unnamed (yet iconic) faces and figures. While the photos may be recognizable, the injection of color turns them into a whole new experience. It’s as if they go from being memories to being awakened moments. Kind of creepy. Kind of cool. We’ll take it.
