    Default Colorised Photos - An Art In Itself

    I am honored to have a colleague in Moscow who specializes in the study of the various Commissariats and Ministries - and all things related - of Soviet State Security and Internal Affairs. He also possesses a gift for colorising B&W photos.

    Here are a few examples of his work that I find especially intriguing:

    NKVD State Security - Circa late 1930X. Original photo is part of my personal collection.

    Really fantastic work, I assume he does it on a computer somehow, but it looks just like the old hand colourising technique.

    Very talented

    Cheers,
