Through the careful selection of striking images and dedicated colourization research, Retrographic will take you on a visual tour of the distant past. Many of these moments are already burned into our collective memory through the power of photography as shared by people across the 190-year long Age of the Image. And now, these visual time capsules are collected together for the first time and presented in living colour.
including the following topics:
19th Century: the Victorians, exploration, colonialism, indigenous people, science, warfare
20th century: lifestyle, WW1, Great Depression, WW2, Hollywood, US, Russian, German, French and British history, the Cold War, 50's and 60's icons and the social revolution
With a forward by Royal Photographic Society Ambassador Jeff Vickers, Retrographic is littered with informative gems and a powerful narrative that bounces themes of conflict, exploration, progress, regression, culture and hope across the Age of the Image. Retrographic is the ultimate celebration of human civilization’s most impactful medium.
