From black and white to colourised.
Professional colourist Jordan J Lloyd is world-renowned for transforming historical images by converting black and white photos to colour. He selects colours that reflect the period the moment was originally captured. Through his process, the viewer can relate to the image in a new and more meaningful way.
Colourists like Lloyd unlock history. Images of the Titanic, Abraham Lincoln and historical events become alive and relatable. These historical figures and events are more realistic with colour.
Lloyd conducts extensive research to reflect the colours of the time accurately. He consults with experts before remastering old photos. “If you have to guess,” Lloyd says, “if it doesn’t look right, it probably isn’t right. Winston Churchill did not wear a purple jacket.”
To create a realistic image, Lloyd uses a tablet.
