Photographs from the American Civil War have a funereal air to them. Add color to these historical artifacts, and a weird thing happens: they spring to life. And in doing so, they almost seem more mundane. Jordan J. Lloyd, of digital image restoration company Dynamichrome, has added color to a selection of Civil War photographs. Consider it a reverse Instagram--rather than filter modern images through the amber lens of the past, Lloyd  strips away all the nostalgia, leaving pictures that just feel strangely normal.
