Mads Madsen is 25 years old and lives in Denmark where he’s pursuing a Master’s degree in the Classics (ancient Greece and Rome). However, his fascination with history doesn’t end there.

Mads also colorizes old photos. Through the use of Photoshop, he meticulously injects life into black and white stills, allowing us to immerse ourselves into moments that have been fading away. There’s just something raw about looking at a person and seeing the color of their eyes. You don’t get that with a monochromic image.
