Artist Marina Amaral takes historical black and white photos and colorizes them, shedding a whole new light on war.
Up through World War II, most photos taken were only shown in black and white. But now, thanks to Brazilian artist Marina Amaral, we are able to glimpse history through a new lens — in color.
“I’ve always been passionate about history and very interested in World War II,” Amaral told Task & Purpose.
She said she began to experiment with Photoshop when she was a child, but it was just a hobby, never anything serious. However, she said, “One day I found a few colorizations on the internet, by accident, and I was fascinated by the possibility to transform my two passions into one single thing.”
But the colorizations are no easy feat, she added.
“It’s like a traditional painting,” she said. “Research, lots of layers of different colors and many hours of patience. Every single pixel is colored by hand — there is nothing automatic in the process.”
Lucky for us, Amaral was kind enough to share six stunning World War II photos with Task & Purpose.
