Artist Spends 3000 Hours To Colorize Old Black & White Photos Of Famous People

Published 6 years ago

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!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
