Marlene Dietrich

Posted by Phil Morris (Saskatoon, Toronto, NYC, Canada) on 8 January 2016 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

I decided to add another Marlene Dietrich photo. I had to spend about a day in restoration, as
it was very badly damaged. Before I have only seen it with a face and all black around it, I
brought out the arms as they were almost non-existant. Then I decided to colour it. This photo
is by George Hurrel I believe. Photo 1932 for Shanghai Express. Decided to change my mind
and return to no colour then back to a more subdued colour !

Great job bringing this photo back to life. It's amazing that these old photos are in good enough shape that you can do the rescue work.

@Steve Rice: Thank you Steve, it was in very bad shape with hundreds of dust particles, tears, etc.

Incredible coloring you've achieved here, while also maintaining the shadows on her face which help add so much dramatic effect!! 5*****

A stunning piece of restoration, Phil. I love the way the colours glow and radiate her character.
