Black and white images of the last century’s most poignant moments
At first glance, the men huddled by the tank could have been fighting just yesterday.
But a second, closer look at the sharply-colored image reveals all is not quite as it seems. These two U.S. soldiers, cigarettes drooping from their mouths, an ancient machine gun clutched to their side, are the subjects of a picture taken in December 1944, in the dying days of the Second World War.
It is just one of the black and white photos brought into glorious technicolor by student Jared Enos, in his bedroom in Rhode Island, New York.
Glimpse of the past: Two American soldiers shelter behind their tank on December 11, 1944, in Geich, near Dren, Germany
Segregation: An African-American man drinks from a 'colored' water cooler in Oklahoma City, in July 1939
D-Day: The crowds celebrating the landing of troops on the beaches of France in Times Square on June 6, 1944
Horrific: A picture of prisoners at a concentration camp in Sachsenhausen, Germany, on July 12, 1936. The striped suits would become famous the world over, for all the wrong reasons in the wake of the Holocaust which was to follow
War and depression: Lauri Trni, left, was convicted of treason for collaborating with the Nazis, and imprisoned for six years in 1944. Six years before his conviction, a child of a migrant family, running from the dust bowl on the prairies, lies ill in Yakima Valley, Washington, 1939. These families were forced to seek out work in the city, only to find there were no jobs when they arrived
The 18-year-old has painstakingly bought the images to life, despite previously having no interest in art.
And the result is breathtaking, with key moments from the 20th century, previously only seen in monochrome, depicted in stunning technicolor.
Enos has managed to bring history into the 21st century, from children playing on a Californian beach shortly after 1900, to a young boy sitting in the dust bowl of 1930s Kansas, and men lined up in a Nazi concentration camp just years before the outbreak of the war.
The pictures can now join thousands of others which amateur photography enthusiasts around the world have been carefully restoring over the past few years.
Thanks to them, people can now enjoy a new perspective on events like the American Civil War, and the nuclear tests of the 1940s.
Fun at the turn of the century: These children are pictured some time between 1900 and 1910 on a beach in California
