Previous Romanian Glass-Plate Pictures Revitalized With Colour And Digital Magic


style=”text-align: justify;”>The re-discovery of over 5,000 glass plate negatives by Romanian photographer Costica Acsinte in 2013 was a sensation for historians {and professional} photographers alike. Australia-based photographer Jane Lengthy created unique artworks based mostly on Acsinte’s newly-discovered black and white images, giving them shade and a way of magic with digital manipulation. Every of those portraits carries a singular story, which Lengthy tried to elaborate upon in her personal creative approach.

style=”text-align: justify;”>Acsinte was considered maybe the one skilled photographer in Romania who took portraits throughout WWI and for many years after its finish, so his newly-found negatives, which have been feared to be misplaced, have been painstakingly digitized to protect them earlier than they suffered any extra injury.
