Clare Treloar's insight:

I like the critique of this infographic: providing food for though and action? How do we design an infographic that represents as well the millennialials who don't have access to this technology to become digitally adept and those who don't care beyond their ego-driven world.

20 Historic Black and White Photos Colorized | Humanities curriculum news | Scoop.it

"One of the greatest facets of reddit are the thriving subreddits, niche communities of people who share a passion for a specific topic. One of the Sifter’s personal favourites is r/ColorizedHistory. The major contributors are a mix of professional and amateur colorizers that bring historic photos to life through color."

This is cool! Really cool! I love monochrome photography but as the comment says "colorizers ... bring historic photos to life through color". Love it!

theo kuechel's comment, August 16, 2013 1:35 AM
This is fascinating for a number of reasons, firstly; in these days of digital photography where the default is 'colour' many photographers choose to convert their images to Black and White in order to create a mood or make visual statements. Although the images used in the piece will be Copyrighted - Flickr Commons http://www.flickr.com/commons offers a wealth of B&W images from museums around the world with 'no known copyright restrictions'. These could be used for all manner of educational and creative projects using colorising techniques.

Joshua Lefkowitz's curator insight, January 24, 4:38 PM

Often times I find it hard to think of history as simply a recolection of time. Youspend your childhood looking at timelines and learning history linearly you often forget that this is not the case. I found this work to be very asthetically pleasing and helpful as well.
