History Revised


 Photographs That Made History Now in Color !!

Alfred Hitchcock Portrait – Colorized by Sanna Dullaway

Reddit user mygrapefruit and self-taught colorizer Sanna Dullaway has colorized famous photographs in history. You can find the entire 34-image collection on Imgur. Using a Wacom bamboo tablet and Photosohp, each photo takes anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours.

It’s an interesting project as it reminds us that while most historic photographs were in black and white, life itself was in the same vibrant color as today (derp). It tickles the mind as we are so accustomed to history portrayed in black and white.

It’s interesting to note that these images have stirred quite the controversy since going viral. Comments on sites like PetaPixel are quite critical, while on Reddit (where it was originally posted) the feedback has been generally positive. What do you think?

Technically, the colorizing skill is superb. It requires great vision and understanding of color to accomplish such realistic outcomes.
