Artist Mario Unger Spends 3000 Hours To Colorize Old Black & White Photos Of Famous People

Evelyn Nesbit CA 1900

Mario Unger is an Austrian photographer and digital artist whose main work is colorizing and restoring old photographs. The artist says the reason for doing all this work is to reduce the felt distance in time a little bit.

“The reason for doing all of this work was to reduce the felt distance in time a little bit. I love B&W photography, but for some images I think, color is needed and most of B&W photography was done for one reason, there just was no color film!” he told Bored Panda.
