Brazilian artist Marina Amaral has an amazing talent for transforming black-and-white photos into colour.
This image features the Sami people of northern Lapland taken some time between 1885-1892
Brazilian artist Marina Amaral has used Photoshop to add a new dimension to black and white photographs
‘I like to say that the process of the colourisation itself is like a traditional painting: many hours of work are required, as well as a lot of study, a lot of patience, and many layers of different colours.’
Brazilian artist Marina Amaral has used Photoshop to add a new dimension to photographs that had previously only been seen in black and white.
The artists, many of which have become popular on Reddit threads, are reviving the lost art of photo colourisation, which has been around for more than 175 years.
‘The basic formula in its variations is straightforward: just keep adding layers of colour onto the black and white image, and mask it off ‘between the lines’. That’s it. The more colour variation you add, the more ‘real’ the final image is perceived to a point (then you’re hitting diminishing returns).’

Despite the dissenters, many artists claim they’ve also received positive feedback from those who are able to appreciate the photos in a new and personal way.

Amaral thinks this is the most powerful image she has created. It features a 14-year-old Polish girl, Czeslawa Kwoka, who was sent to the Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz with her mother in 1942. Both died within three months.
Meanwhile, in Japan a photographer named Yokoyama Matsusaburō used his training as a painter and lithographer to create shashin abura-e or ‘photographic oil paintings’.
Amaral also spotlights everyday people, like this family gathered around a water fountain in New York City’s Central Park.
Amaral is also commissioned by publishers, magazines, TV stations, and museums. “Each segment is different and wants different types of photos, so it’s really fun to work with people from all of these areas,” she says.

Driven by a fascination for history, she is lovingly faithful to the image’s context. It’s a painstaking process, she tells Business Insider, involving intense research and often months of Photoshop work.
Amaral says: “Every day I get messages from people saying that they were able to truly understand the Holocaust only after seeing this image in colour. That’s always been my goal, so I feel really proud of it.”
“Research is essential,” she adds. “I never start a job without having gathered as much information as possible, because that’s what makes the colours historically accurate.”
“I received a video showing a woman’s reaction when receiving a photo of her parents that I restored,” the artists says. “It was a Christmas gift that her son gave to her. She cried after seeing the photo, and I cried watching the video.
