Travel back in time and see Philippine history digitally colored to give life to your imaginations.

/ 31 August 2020

Blasts from the past are some of the fascinating experiences most of us enjoy. The sense of sentimentality and nostalgia that lies in black and white or sepia photos are just some of the reasons why there’s a longing to look back on historical pieces of the past. And with technology nowadays, the recreation of these experiences only made it more alive and realistic for people to relish on.

Kulay Colorization is a Facebook page that brings the good old days back to life in vivid colors. Featuring a library of historical photos digitally-colored to show us a glimpse of life back then and notably, the eventful Spanish colonization era, the page takes us on a time travel through photos. Technology has only made history more clear in our imaginations with the use of digital editing tools that enhance photos as if it was shot recently. Through this, many people are able to reminisce about the past and get a closer look on details that we might have missed from our school books.

Here are just some photos that piques interest for its historical essence, the notable personas, and the sheer sentimentality that resides in its mundane scene:
