before and after - Another restored and "handtinted" scanned photograph from the very early 20th century, I bought the original with a bunch of others from an antique-shop, they all seem to show the same - anonymous - boy from an obviously wealthy Hamburg family in various ages, with and without mother and also with possibly girlfriend or sister and wife. They are in extremely good condition, which made it easy to go nearly straight to the colouring part. I did this some months ago, but came back to it after an email conversation with my dear friend Phil yesterday, who is truly a handcolouring artist and reminded me of that series.
As I said before on other occasions, it is weird to look at the photos of other people, not knowing if there is anyone of that family still alive and what these people might have been like.
Please respect my work.
