Mesmerizing Colorized Historical Photos Make Them Look Very Real


Artist Marina Amaral, fascinated with history, brings back to life the black and white historical photos by using Photoshop to colorize them.

Amaral, in the process,  researches fashion by speaking to professional experts in order to make the perfect authentic photo remake.  “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,” Amaral explaining the reason why she has chosen to colorize the photos.
