Over the last couple years, an increasingly popular trend online has been to create and share colorized photos from history. Artists such as Jordan Lloyd, Dana Keller and Sanna Dullaway take intriguing old black-and-white photos and bring them to life with color as if they’d been taken only yesterday.

These black and white photos with color added are amazing. My favorites are below: Audrey Hepburn (1947?), Charlie Chaplin (1916), Albert Einstein (1939), and Mark Twain (1900), and Abraham Lincoln (1865)
