I Colorize Historical Black And White Photos, And Here Are My Best 50 Works
Hi, I'm Jecinci, a 36 years old architect & 3D Artist from Romania with a passion for colorizing black & white photos. For me, colorizing black & white pictures is a hobby that opens a vibrant and dynamic window into the past, through which memories become a vivid reality.
I started this hobby of photo restoration five years ago, after seeing a tutorial on YouTube by chance, with an old photo of my grandparents and continued with other members of the family. The next step was to improve my skills, and, with the help of some of the best photo editing artists in the field (Olga S., Doug B., Dragos A., Florin R., Patty A., Jared E., Mads M., Jordan L. & others, to whom I would like to say a BIG "Thank you!"), I managed to do that (and will continue to do so, I hope).
Young Princess Diana With Her Guinea Pig Peanuts At The Sandringham Pet Show, 1972
After a while, I started to concentrate on portraits until I managed to get a good grasp on them. This improved my "technical" Photoshop skills and gave me the courage to tackle other types of vintage photos like landscapes, war scenes, cars, city life, and all sorts of miscellaneous subjects.
I like to colorize images that intrigue me and my imagination. Images I'm curious to see in color, besides portraits of important or less important figures, some more or less known, some more or less controversial. I like to give people that follow my work images that will set them on a path of discovery and a bit of knowledge. That will put a smile on their faces, or make them remember a part of history (like they do for me). By doing this, I also share with them a bit of myself, a bit of what interests me.
Albert Einstein Wearing His Levi's "Menlo Cossack" Leather Jacket, 1938
Frank Sinatra Arrested, Mugshot From 27 Nov 1938
I would like to thank the people who follow my work for their support, and I hope that I will be able to keep them interested in the future with the images I have not yet colorized. You can follow me on my social media and see my other works on my website.
Here is a part of my over 1300 colorized photos. I hope you'll enjoy them
