The past has never looked so alive as presented on the jaw-droppingly handsome pages of Retrographic, a ground-breaking book hailed in the media as a revolutionary new way to access the past. By gathering an exclusive collection of 120 of the world’s most important images from photographic grandmasters such as Dorothea Lange and Alfred Eisenstaedt, as-well-as Pulitzer Prize winners Malcolm Brown and Nick Ut - this is a book which truly celebrates our shared visual heritage.
Through accepting Retrographic into its prestigious research collection, London’s Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) has recognised the book’s importance. Alongside rarer images, Retrographic transforms these world-famous classics from the black and white of the past, and allows these visual time-capsules to explode into the living colour of the 21st century.
The skilfully colourised photographs provided by Retrographic's talented team of international contributors are displayed alongside a fact-packed narrative from digital journalist Michael D. Carroll.
