Color centennial photographs of immigrants who arrived in the United States reveal the contrast of culturesBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/color-centennial-photographs-of-immigrants-who-arrived-in-the-united-states-reveal-the-contrast-of-cultures
Amazing photos clearly demonstrate the diversity and dissimilarity of the different cultures of those people who arrived in the United States at the beginning of the XX century with the hope of starting a new life. Initially, the black-and-white photographs were taken by August Sherwood, an amateur photographer and employee who registered immigrants arriving on Ellis Island. Between 1892 and 1954, 12 million people were registered.
The photos were colorized by colorists from Dynamichrome and will be published in the photobook The Paper Time Machine.
Portraits from 100 years ago also show stunning national costumes, which were most often the best clothes of people who decided to give up everything and go to America in search of a better life.
