3000 Hours Later, Here Are 30+ Old Black & White Photos Of Famous People That I Colorized


colorizing old photographs

Hi, my name is Mario Unger, I’m a photographer and digital artist from Austria. Last year my main work was restoring and colorizing old photographs. In this post I show some of my favorites.

The reason for doing all of this work was to reduce the felt distance in time a little bit. I love B&W photography, but for some images I think, color is needed and most of B&W photography was done for one reason, there just was no color film!
