Our photos that have somehow been damaged over time, restoring it to improve an image. This image needed color correction, remove skin blemish, and restore lost image details.
I’ve always been fascinated by history, geneology and photography – I’m also aware of the personal meaning that photographs have for people. A restored photo allows people to see departed loved ones again, see ourselves at different stages of life, or ancestors we’ve never met but feel a connection to. Enhanced photos can take on new meaning, greater significance and initiate recalled memories – one may notice new details such as facial expressions, or the background settings in which people lived.
There is a therapeutic aspect to my work in that I am both healing a photo and creating a new possibility for connection with one’s past.
