HISTORY IN COLOUR

As a sufferer of romantic sensibilities, I grow strangely sentimental when I look at images from bygone eras. Perhaps they remind me of my own mortality – the brevity of generations and ages, but I think it’s also a longing to return to something lost, like a time travel victim with amnesia… These colourized images are particularly stirring, history brought back to life by talented artists like  Jordan LloydDana Keller and Sanna Dullaway. Enjoy!
