We treat color photos as something real and modern. Thanks to the hobby of an artist Olga Shirnina, who works under the nickname of Klimbim, we can have a new impression from historic events and famous individuals who lived in Russia long ago. Olga is into colorization of historic photographs and she does it really well.

  1. Well done, Ms. Shirnina! These are really beautiful, and truly make the history appear more recent and alive. Please continue!

  2. I especially like the picture of “Princess Zinaida N. Yusupova, 1903” The dress is just awesome. I know there were extremely poor, starving people in Russia at that time, but as Tucholsky said: “may it be a display of expropriated work but it is still more beautiful than a bank”
