I'm currently working on a couple of other colourised photos which are proving to be be quite complex. To take a break from them I decided to colour this famous photo of a Navajo boy taken in 1906. The original black and white image is creased and a little faded but the addition of colour really adds impact to this striking young man. Whereas the original photo does look to be over 100 years old the colour version does make it feel like it was taken just the other day and makes the loss of whole Native American nations, culture and land all the more striking.
