These Colorized Historical Photos Make The Past Seem VERY Real.

Marina Amaral is fascinated with history; one way she is bringing the past back to life is with the use of Photoshop. Amaral restores old photos originally shot in black and white and gives them color.

The artist researches the time, fashion, and even seeks professional experts in order for the images to look and feel as authentic as possible. Marina feels the new color updates changes our relationship to events. “It is a complex process able to transport us to anywhere. When we look at the photo in color, we can easily have the feeling that we are living that moment again,” explains Amaral.
