Looking at old historical photos is like stepping back in time. However, many of the most meaningful historical photos were taken long before the invention of color photography. While beautiful to look at, these black-and-white photos are harder to connect with, since we”re all so used to living in a world of vivid colors.

This is where photo colorizer Dana Keller comes in. Keller understands the impact that a properly colorized photograph can have on viewers. His speciality is bringing historical photographs to life with the addition of captivating, accurate color. Check out his work in the examples below.
