It’s not really a new thing around the web or the design community, but I recently started to look into colorisation of old photographs a little bit more. It really fascinates me, how old photographs suddenly look so much livelier and people seem much more real after (simplified spoken) adding some color. Black and white phtography has a thing to let people and places seem to be kind of withdrawn from the real world and like ghosts from a long time ago. And to turn this around and show their real faces has some kind of big magic in it.

I made a first attempt and colorized this old photograph of a broadway actress taken from here. But you can find some really stunning examples by Sanna Dullaway around the web.
