Olga Shirnina Wonderful Colorized Photos Of Russian Artists And Politicians

Translator and amateur colorist Olga Shirnina, also known as Klimbim, has an incredible talent for transforming historical black and white photographs into color images. She often works to breath new life into vintage photographs that show Russian history: portraits of the imperial Romanov family, Lenin, Rasputin, or some of the most iconic Russian artists.
In her view, color has the power to close the gap between the subjects of musty public domain photos and their modern viewers. The most fulfilling moment for her comes when ‘suddenly the person looks back at you as if he’s alive’.
