This Artist Colorizes Old Black & White Photos, And They Will Change The Way People Imagine History

Published 4 months ago

Marina Amaral is a Brazilian colorist who has been using Photoshop since she was ten years old. She uses her skills to make historic black and white photos burst with vivid colors and give us an interesting look into how things really looked like in the old days.

Marina has been coloring old pictures since 2015 when she stumbled across some colored World War I photos while browsing history forums. A lot of work goes into achieving such accurate results: “Each photo is made to be realistic by recognizing the value behind each one of them, respecting and preserving their stories, paying attention to the finer details and maintaining their original essence,” says Marina.

Marina says her work ranges from simple portraits to complex and detailed images, taken from various historical periods covering a wide range of topics. She does extensive in-depth research and gets expert opinions if necessary to faithfully reproduce the original colors and atmosphere.

Check out the amazing colored historic photos in the gallery below!
