B&W Portraits of Celebrities from the Past Colorized

Younger versions of legendary stars like Betty White and Angela Lansbury are revitalized through colorizations skillfully administered by Wayne Degan of MetaColor. The Bangor, Maine-based creative takes old, black and white photos he stumbles upon and carefully adds pigments to them through Photoshop—a process that can take anywhere from two to twenty hours, depending on the detail of the image. The skilled photo manipulator’s growing collection features a number of celebrities, both iconic actors and contemporary performers, whose monochromatic portraits are given new life through color.
