Swedish artist Sanna Dullaway renders iconic black-and-white photographs in colour, utilizing primarily Photoshop CS5. Dullaway, who offers a recolouring and restoration service for old photographs, undertook the works– alongside processing old family photos– as a personal project.
Already controversial, raising questions of the reappropriation of culturally significant imagery, as well as the boundaries of what classifies something as art, the recoloured photographs are also technically striking, generally achieving a colour and climate that is not only realistic but also largely consistent with the tonalities achievable or popular at the time. Each piece takes approximately two to three hours to finish. ( via designboom )
