Abraham Lincoln, 1865

Historic Photographs Colored from Black and White is a collection of photographs that have been professionally converted to color to bring them to life. It is always fascinating to find a collection of Black & White photos that have a historical prominence. For some reason, I always found the black and white photos to be out of context, although they are brilliant references to our history, they still portrayed a lack of energy. Two artists in particular Dana Keller and Sanna Dullaway , have spent many hours colourizing some fascinating black and white portraits from the past and the results can be seen here.
