Iconic Pictures in Full Color by Sanna Dullaway

sannadullawaypastincolour7 600x549 Iconic Pictures in Full Color by Sanna Dullaway

It may be difficult for today’s generation to imagine a world where all the photographs are in black and white, but until recently, this was so. Freelance artist Sanna Dullaway went out of her way to fix that. She took iconic photos in black and white and with the help of digital technology, restored them and added color. It may seem such a small thing, adding color to black and white photographs, but it takes a lot of time and a keen eye for shading to achieve a near-flawless conversion. The photos she restored all look like they were taken yesterday.

joggingseries53 Sacha Goldberger’s Before and After

No one wants to have bad pictures of themselves taken, but French artist Sacha Goldberger did just that. He managed to convince passers-by to pose for a picture after taking a full-out sprint ’round the corner. He also asked them to drop by his studio after a week wearing their Sunday best. In the latter pictures he took, he posed his subjects to mimic their previous pose. The results are hilariously surprising, to say the least. In this series, Sacha  “wanted to show the difference between our natural and brute side versus how we represent ourselves to society”. I do believe he achieved precisely that.

There are thousands, maybe even millions, of images of running waters, steady waters, rivers, oceans, falls and such but only a select few choose to give their time to this one part that makes all those up–water droplets. Paul Quinn is one of them, adding a creative touch to it with different colorful objects, giving a nice, subtle feeling while wondering how steady it had to be before it can be as perfect as it looks on the photo itself.

Dissembled Flowers by Qi Wei

Photography has always been Qi Wei’s passion. This Singapore-based artist was inspired by Todd McLellan’s Dissembled Objects series, but instead of using objects as her subjects, she used flowers. The basic idea of taking the subject apart is the same, but she does it in such a way that the radial symmetry and floral components are left intact. The result is a spectacular feast for the eyes. Colorfully abstract, yet utterly recognizable, this series is a tribute to Mother Nature.
