Photos craft our memories – from family wedding shots to famous portraits and historical front covers. A Swedish artist specializes in turning Black & White photos into color to bring such memorable photos to life, with a recent project focusing on iconic historic photos such as Anne Frank's passport photo and the infamous US nuclear weapons test at the Bikini Atoll.
Sanna Dullaway's photos, featured on the funky blog InkTank, bring a new understanding to the events depicted – as though Abraham Lincoln could have been sitting at the café downstairs, or Albert Einstein talking physics your family dinner.
Truly inspired work.
