These gorgeous colorized photos bring famous historical figures to life

Back in September we showed you this jaw-dropping colorized photo of 29 famous scientists. Now, thanks to the work of 18-year-old artist Mars Madsen, we have some more, including the reworking of black-and-white photos of these famous scientists.

It’s truly amazing how much life a bit of color can add to a photograph. Black-and-white photos are all fine and well, but the low spectral bandwidth can be quite disengaging at times; color photos simply look more real.
