I think there is something special in black and white photography. Although they are missing all colors, they still tell us a lot and maybe even more than they would if they were colored.
However, I couldn’t watch some old grayscale photo and not to try to imagine how the photographed objects or people looked like in real, what are the original colors of everything what is displayed in image.
Today there are different technologies which can help us to “relive” those old black and white photos and to color them with the real colors of the photographed objects.
Yves Tennevin has found here an opportunity to make some unique kind of artworks. He found a collection of old black&white photos from Japan, which were taken by Adolfo Farsari more than hundred years ago, and he started to color them trying to recreate the real look of objects and people which were photographed.
