The internet truly is an amazing place. Here’s another interesting find – A series of vintage black and white photographs of some of the most iconic people and historical events in the world magically transformed into colored photos. Let’s check it out right after the jump.
Now I’m not sure who did all these and how it was done. But it’s worth sharing to all of you guys. It’s funny because I always saw Abraham Lincoln in black and white and I actually had dreams where I met him in person and he’s all black and white shaking my hand, so it’s a new experience seeing him in color.
Here are some of the world’s famous photographs and their colored counterparts. These include Albert Einstein, Mark Twain, Charlie Chaplin, Anne Frank, Alfred Hitchcock, Winston Churchhill, Charles Darwin, and Abraham Lincoln.
As well as historical events from all over the world like V-Day in Times Square, At the Time of the Louisville Flood, The Burning Monk, and the Execution of a Viet Cong Guerrilla to name a few.
Black and white photography has a strong appeal. I personally find it more intense and captivating. And it’s interesting to see these images in color. It dynamically changes the way we perceive these photographs that are part of history.
