Hand Colored Photos



These photos where gifted to the Library of Congress by David A. Rector. Sioux Oglala indians lived near Missouri and were considered a very important tribe. These pictures were originally black and whites, photographed by Herman Heyn in 1899, to be colored in by hand later on.
I could go on about the historical background of this tribe but I would rather just share these amazing pictures and show you what hand-painted enhanced photos can look like.
