The series Restoration and Colorization proposes the reevaluation and contextualizing of images deteriorated by time’s passing.

The process of restoring and colorizing the photographs has been done after a thorough study regarding the historical period in which the pictures were taken (specific clothing, accessories or background elements) and their characteristics.

Although the colorization of the photographs has the purpose to accurately present details of history, there are situations where we assigned colors based on how well they look together rather than being historically accurate, avoiding as much as possible the alteration of their significance.
