Australia-based artist Jane Long has revealed the latest additions to her "Dancing with Costica" series, in which she digitally restores, colors, and manipulates black-and-white photos captured over 50 years ago. This series all began after discovering the Flickr archive of Costica Acsinte, a Romanian war photographer who documented WWI and passed away in 1984. "I wanted to bring them to life. But more than that, I wanted to give them a story. I wanted people to see these figures as real people, more than just an old photograph. Adding color completely changes our perception of images.
