The collection of photographs below all used to be black and white images. Until Marina Amaral brought them back to life by adding color.
“Every completed work has gone through long and in-depth research, and is supported by the opinions of experts in each particular area if necessary, to faithfully reproduce the original colors and atmosphere. My work ranges from simple portraits to complex and detailed images, taken from various historical periods covering a wide range of topics.”
“Coloring black and white photos is an art that requires a deep work of research, analysis of each object to make it be as realistic as possible, historical knowledge and enough respect to value and preserve every detail in each story. It is a complex process able to transport us to anywhere. When we look at the photo in color, we can easily have the feeling that we are living that moment again.”
