The Colour of War

 

Moving on from our very successful series called Ghost of War we are now looking at another Series called The Colour of War. We will take figures and areas of Hull & East Yorkshire and other selected photographs and re colourise them to give them a perspective and make them come alive.

 

All Photographs here are Colourised by Andy.
