The Past, in Living Color

22 Words

Looking through the black-and-white photos of high school history books always made the past feel like a distant dream. Not any more, thanks to artists like Jordan Lloyd, Dana Keller, and Sanna Dullaway, who have made it their personal mission to colorize iconic historical photos and bring the past to life.

“Black and white photography can be an artistic choice, but with images taken before the advent of mainstream colour photography, it was usually the only option,” says a blurb on Jordan Lloyd’s website. “Skillfully restored and authentically colourised photos allow the viewer to connect with a past era and see details they never noticed before.”

Thanks to these artists, we can see the mushroom cloud of the hydrogen bomb against a shocking blue sky and the bright barrage of Coca Cola ads at an country store in 1939. Figures like Audrey Hepburn, Albert Einstein, Walt Whitman, and Charlie Chaplin suddenly feel like close friends or family members. The past feels like the present, and history jumps off the page.
