Sometimes the past can feel incredibly distant, like stories that people tell rather than lives that were actually lived. Even when we view portraits of people who lived during the periods at hand, it can be difficult to identify with those people, partially because many of the photos are in black and white. A new trend in photography is changing the way we see the past. With colorized photographs, history seems to come to life. It becomes much easier to believe these people actually lived and that these things actually happened. Aside from being an interesting way to connect today’s society with the past, the colorized photographs are breathtakingly beautiful! Check out a few of these colorized photographs below, and find more over at The Mind Unleashed.
