Anyone can use Photoshop, but doing a good job with photo editing remains a craft. Brazilian artist, Marina Amaral, does not just click-and-drag. Driven by her burning passion with history, she does extensive research and gives a lot of effort to make her colorizations seem as realistic as possible.


Marina has been playing with Photoshop since she was about ten years old. In 2015, the artist was scrolling an online history forum and discovered colorized pictures of World War I. Instantly inspired, she began restoring and putting color into images which were originally black and white. That allows someone to experience the past through a brand new perspective.


Continue scrolling to enjoy Marina's wonderful work.
