Look from the past

Amaral has played with Photoshop since she was about ten. In 2015, she was scrolling a history forum on the internet and discovered colorized photos of World War I. Instantly inspired, Amaral started restoring and putting color into photos that were originally black and white. This allows people to experience the past through a whole new perspective. “Each photo is made to be realistic by recognizing the value behind each one of them, respecting and preserving their stories, paying attention to the finer details and maintaining their original essence.”

“Every completed work has gone through long and in depth research, and is supported by the opinions of experts in each particular area if necessary, to faithfully reproduce the original colors and atmosphere,” she adds. “My work ranges from simple portraits to complex and detailed images, taken from various historical periods covering a wide range of topics.” Continue scrolling to enjoy Marina’s wonderful work.
