20 Historic Black and White Photos Colorized
One of the greatest facets of reddit are the thriving subreddits, niche communities of people who share a passion for a specific topic. One of the Sifter’s personal favourites is r/ColorizedHistory. The major contributors are a mix of professional and amateur colorizers that bring historic photos to life through color. All of them are highly skilled digital artists that use a combination of historical reference material and a natural eye for colour. When we see old photos in black and white, we sometimes forget that life back then was experienced in the same vibrant colours that surround us today. This gallery of talented artists helps us remember that :) Below you will find a collection of some of the highest rated colorized images to date on r/ColorizedHistory. I’ve also provide a list of some of the top contributors (in no particular order): 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20.

Painting the Dramatic Moment: An Interview with Elise Schweitzer : Painting Perceptions Interview by Elana Hagler Elise Schweitzer’s full-bodied, bold, and luscious paintings caught my eye a couple of years ago and I’ve been following her work since. Elise has a wonderful mix of formal invention and playful, curious narrative in her work. Many painters I’ve seen tend to fall into the formalist camp or the narrative camp, and one of the things that I very much appreciate about Elise’s work is that she plays within both worlds and does so with confidence and a sense of visual adventure. BBC Arts & Culture - Vivian Maier: lost art of an urban photographer 25 June 2013Last updated at 10:15 By Jill Nicholls Director, BBC One imagine A web-exclusive clip in which Vivian Maier's French friend Nelly Richebois talks about Vivian's outcast, impoverished grandfather and about their youthful friendship. She's been called 'the greatest photographer you've never heard of'... the mysterious Vivian Maier, a nanny based in Chicago who took about 150,000 photographs in her lifetime and stashed them away, not showing them to anyone. She left thousands not even developed, and most as negatives from which she never made prints. It was sheer accident that her life's work was discovered.

20 Photos That Change The Holocaust Narrative Victims. Helpless. Downtrodden. That’s the narrative that’s been spread about Jews for the last 70 years since the Holocaust.

But the tide of battle is changing. A report from the front lines. TV review: Imagine: Vivian Maier – Who Took Nanny's Pictures? BBC1; Secrets from the Workhouse. ITV - Reviews - TV & Radio Maier spent most of her life working as a nanny for prosperous Chicago families, taking photographs assiduously both on and off-duty. With no home of her own she filed them away in rented storage and when she couldn't afford to pay the bills during a period of ill-health a dealer called Roger Gunderson brought five lockers, sight unseen. After the images started to appear on eBay and online blogs devoted to street photography, serious galleries began to get interested and her reputation built. Now vintage prints of her pictures sell for up to $8,000. Gunderson's haul consisted of around 150,000 photographs, though he sold them on for a fraction of their current worth. Judging from the selection you saw here, Maier had an instinctive eye.

Collaborating with a 4-year Old One day, while my daughter was happily distracted in her own marker drawings, I decided to risk pulling out a new sketchbook I had special ordered. It had dark paper, and was perfect for adding highlights to. I had only drawn a little in it, and was anxious to try it again, but knowing our daughter’s love of art supplies, it meant that if I wasn’t sly enough, I might have to share. (Note: I’m all about kid’s crafts, but when it comes to my own art projects, I don’t like to share.)

Flipped Learning & Spaghetti Sauce I have recently been reading books by Malcolm Gladwell: Outliers and Tipping Point. I ran across a TED talk he did in 2004 talking about Spaghetti sauce.

Henri Cartier-Bresson: Living and Looking The journalist and filmmaker Sheila Turner-Seed interviewed Henri Cartier-Bresson in his Paris studio in 1971 for a film-strip series on photographers that she produced for Scholastic. After her death in 1979 at the age of 42, that interview, along with interviews that Ms. Turner-Seed had conducted with Bruce Davidson, Cornell Capa, Lisette Model, W. Eugene Smith, Don McCullin and others, sat like a time capsule in the archives of the International Center of Photography in New York. That is, until 2011, when Ms.
