Artist Colorized Century-Old Images to Bring Native American Culture Back to Brilliant Life
Lifestyle| | By Jason Owen
Incredible portraits of Native Americans from up to 120 years ago have been brought to life in a series of colorized pictures. The stunning series of images include Iron White Man from the Sioux tribe — who traveled with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show wearing the police uniform he would have performed in — and a Native American on the Flathead Indian Reservation in Western Montana clutching a rifle. Contrasting spectacular pictures show Plain Owl of the Crow tribe wearing a traditional dress and holding a tomahawk in his lap.
The amazing pictures were colorized by bank technician Frederic Duriez, a 51-year-old from Angres, Pas de Calais, France. Frederic Duriez has been practicing colorization for two years, according to WENN.com. See all of Duriez’s vibrant images below.
