In a remarkable feat of digital wizardry, Youtuber NASS has breathed new life into a piece of history. Through the process of colorization, restoration, face reconstruction, and sound design, the video artist has transformed black and white footage of New Orleans in the 1920s into a vivid and immersive experience. This project sheds light on the vibrant cultural tapestry of the era, allowing viewers to step back in time and witness the past in broad and colorful daylight.
