Marina Amaral is a digital colourist who specializes in adding colour to black and white photographs and “breathing life into the past”.

Her first exhibition took place at the German Football Museum in Dortmund in 2017.

Marina has worked with several leading companies, museums, and institutions, including History Channel, PBS, KFC, English Heritage, Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Alabama.
