Historic Glass-Plate Photos From Romania Restored And Turned Into Colorful Art (Part 2)

Continuing with her Dancing with Costică series, Australian artist Jane Long uses photographs from Romanian photographer Costică Acsinte restores, recolors and transforms them into something unexpected!

Some people love them and some people hate them but there’s little doubt they all involve lots of painstaking retouching in Photoshop. The original images are part of a collection being restored and digitized by Cezar Popescu for the Ialomita County Museum.

The series will be exhibited as part of the Ballarat International Foto Biennale from August 22nd.

I've commented on poor restorations beforehand, they are relatively easy with good PS skills. However...these are a different level. Love them. Conceptual, Surreal and very well executed. Kudos.

Although a couple were vaguely disturbing, I'm happy that these old portraits have not been lost to time.
