In “History in the color” black-and-white photographs made in color.
Looking through the photos of the events of bygone days, it seems that over time, the world became brighter. As if at the beginning of XX century everything was black and white, and gradually acquired the colors and shades. But, of course, the past was not devoid of colors: the people, their clothes, the scenery on the background – everything had its own color.
The participants of the project “History in Color” on the website reddit figured out how to look to the past century, without losing color. Professional digital artists painted historical pictures, existing only in black and white, thereby breathing life into them.
It would seem that the idea is simple, and there is nothing special: just something signage at the store will be multi-colored, or dress – not black, and dark red. However, the results exceeded expectations.
The final image has a surprising effect: historical moments in color obtained incredibly alive. People seem more real events – whether the war scenes or moments of friendly gatherings – look as if they had occurred recently. It makes the photos much more impressive.
