Amaral’s work provides a different and beautiful look at various people and events.
Each of the works requires a lot of careful research, planning, and retouching — Amaral sometimes spends months working on a single image. All the digital editing is done by hand in Photoshop, and often involves hundreds of different layers of color coming together to form the final look.
Here are some more colorizations Amaral has done so far:

Omaha Beach landing
Banana docks, New York, ca. 1890-1910.
