Gorgeous Colorized Historical Photos

Mark Twain relaxing outside on what seems to be an autumn day.

An incredible collection of famous historic black and white photographs brought to life by Jordan Lloyd and Mads Madsen. The two professional colorists have combined their skills to create a remarkable series of color photographs from the American Civil War, and people of each era.

Both of them are highly skilled digital artists. You can see more of their work by going to Photo Chopshop and Colorized History. Some of those photos go back 150 years.
