This Is What Photo-Realistic History Looks Like
“History didn’t happen in grainy black and white…” the narrator says, “and it doesn’t deserve to be remembered that way by future generations.”
Giving history new life is a great goal to have, and by the looks of it, Unique & Limited has turned it into a beautiful business model. Think of it this way: if Hollywood can bring the past to life for an entire movie, it must be possible to bring a single photograph to life, given the right setting, actors, and props.
What’s interesting is that Unique & Limited then apply digital techniques to further refine the scene before printing everything out on Hahnemühle FineArt Baryta archival paper for long-term display.
This process has been applied to everything from photo-realistic shots of the greatest moments in Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrows history, to more poster-like (but no less detailed) “Colors of Speed” collection.
Framed or unframed, Unique & Limited prints look like a great way to appreciate and preserve an arguably more life-like understanding of historic events. I hear they do commissions, as well…
