“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…
