The Godfather

Then & Now

We've restored and colorized famous moments from the European historical heritage from the XXth century. Computerized colorization began in the 1970s using the technique invented by Wilson Markle. These early attempts at colourisation have soft contrast and fairly pale, flat, washed-out color; however, the technology improved steadily since the 1980s. The colourizing process itself is not an easy thing and it highly depends on the colourizer’s involvement into this activity. Sometimes it is completely impossible to guess the original color of the different clothes or furnishments on the pictures, thus the whole process needs a great imagination and sense for aesthetics. We are glad to show you these beautiful photos in another perspective from the past!
