An Exercise In Color – Sanna Dullaway

A few days ago, Designboom ran an article on Swedish Artist Sanna Dullaway. Sanna works as a restoration artist and more recently with old historic photos that she recolors using shades in Photoshop that would have been popular during the period in which the photo was taken.
