Artist Spends 3000 Hours To Colorize Old Black & White Photos Of Famous People
Mario Unger is an Austrian photographer and digital artist whose main work is colorizing and restoring old photographs. The artist says the reason for doing all this work is to reduce the felt distance in time a little bit.
Mario says he loves black and white photography but thinks some of them need color – “Most of B&W photography was done for one reason, there just was no color film!”. Check out the artist’s colored historic photos in the gallery below!
