Intermission: Black-and-White Photos Get a Taste of Color
History gets an injection of color.
Sanna Dullaway, a 21-year-old artist from Sweden, has been giving historical photos an unexpected facelift: a wash of color. Dullaway, who has been restoring photos and teaching herself Photoshop since she was 15, started injecting color into classic black-and-white photographs last year and has been hooked ever since. Dullaway says the project aims to show history in a new light. "I did not want to 'improve' nor 'replace' the original works, which I do respect," she says. "I think if people had the choice to photograph in color film 80 years back many of them would do so."
