I have worked in photo restoration for a few years, mostly as a hobby. My favorite thing to do though is colorize old black and white images from
family photos and such. Recently I became obsessed with this idea of finding a color picture if LBJ's swearing in after President Kennedy was
murdered. I found out that such a beast did not exist.
So I had to make one.
I hate the man, but it is such an important piece of our history that I felt it needed a different presentation.
From there I started to create other colorized works of people and events I find personally important.
Oswald. Getting shot. What else is there to say?
Franklin Roosevelt giving one of his first fireside chats. A man I highly respect.
Langston Hughes, one of my favorite poets.
This last image is one that brought me to tears as I made it. Bobby was our last, best hope in the country. The powers the be took him from us and one
day I hope they suffer in the worst way possible.
I am making many more of these color views of the past. I hope to share them in the future with you.
