7 Iconic Australian Photos Brought To Life With Colour

The movement to Colourise History, using the latest design technology to bring iconic black and white photos to life with colour, has gained a lot of momentum online in recent months.

However, to date these incredible efforts have predominantly focused on images from American history.

In order to bring Australian history to life using this technique, Innovate or Die commissioned young digital artist Alex Kemp to try his hand at colourising iconic images of iconic Australian moments and personality.

Below are the resulting images, that I think you will agree, really bring them to life!
