Coloring Old Black and White Photos Marina Amaral Bring the New Life to Important History Moments

“Coloring black and white photos is an art that requires a deep work of research, analysis of each object to make it be as realistic as possible, historical knowledge and enough respect to value and preserve every detail in each story. 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.”

Artist Marina Amaral decided to give history an entirely new perspective when she started infusing colour into pictures captured in monochrome. Putting Photoshop to some good use, Marina reproduced many iconic pictures by bringing them to life in a celebration of colours, preserving their innate authenticity all the while.

The effect creates a more intimate portrayal of history and allows a contemporary audience to connect to the past in a deeper and more emotional way.

  1. You are just … plain AMAZING. This is mastery, plain and simple. And it must have required a full decade of dedication, repetition, correction and reccorrection, learning and relearning, and of course long hours of deep research. A salute for a master when I meet one. I salute.
    There’s an Amaral’s Travel on the Caribbean island of Trinidad … any connection?
