Astonishing Colorized Photographs Bring History Back To Life

Bringing some color to history, The Paper Time Machine is an amazing collaboration between Wolfgang Wild (creator and curator of Retronaut) as well as Jordan Lloyd of Dynamichrome. In the book, more than 100 photographs have been thoroughly researched and restored in a manner which brings history to life.


From iconic pictures like Dorothea Lange’s Migrant Mother as well as Lewis Hine‘s Powerhouse Mechanic and more, the photos are unbelievable. In the book, each one of the 124 colorized images is juxtaposed with its black and white version, allowing readers to see what a difference a little color can make.


Among the photographs, there is also a set of images from Ellis Island, initially taken in the 1900s. Lloyd expertly brings color and character to those anonymous immigrants from around the globe as they hope for better lives in the US. Through color, these subjects seem closer to us and our own time, linking history and the issues we're currently facing.


As Lloyd puts it: “These details bridge the gap between decades to something that everyone can suddenly relate to—seeing something from that long ago in color helps us understand it a little better because color plays a major part in how we interact with the world.”
