History has never been black and white. It’s as colorful as our present and future will be. Unfortunately, we couldn’t see the colors in black and white pics until a few amazing artists, like Mads Madson aka Zuzahin, Sanna Dullaway, and Dana Keller, painstakingly applied color to historical photos and made them more alive than ever before.
