This Photographer Restores “Unrestorable” Photos, And The Results Are Amazing

Unknown Woman, Ca 1880

Before the age of digital photography, all we had were negatives and paper photos. The sad thing about it is that they tend to deteriorate over time – fading, cracking, ripping and slowly becoming almost unrecognizable. Lucky for us, there are talented people out there who dedicate their skills to restoring these fading old photos.

One of them is photographer Mario Unger (previuosly) from Austria, whose excellent Photoshop skills and profound interest in restoration have helped numerous people bring back old memories.
