Historic Colorized Photos by Marina Amaral

Brazilian artist Marina Amaral combines her love of history with creativity, creating colorized versions of historic photos.

The final colorized photos are formed from hundreds of Photoshop layers that create the atmosphere and mood Amaral is after. Her work often focuses on historic images of conflict, soldiers of yesteryear made alive through her colors. A series of portraits of 14-year-old Czeslawa Kwoka, who died in the Auschwitz concentration camp in 1942, is one of her most meaningful images. “Every day I get messages from people saying that they were able to truly understand the Holocaust only after seeing this image in color. That’s always been my goal, so I feel really proud of it.”
