About the artwork

This view of New York was captured by Samuel Herman Gottscho in 1933 then restored and colourised by Marie-Lou Chatel in 2018. The photographer's objective is to find colours similar to reality without distorting the essence of the original image. The choice of both colours and settings must be meticulous and harmonious. Upon reflection, it seems akin to a countless number of categories: from haute couture to painting, to the talents of a stained-glass maker or jewel setter. This rigorous standard requires thorough research into the historical information prior to working on the photograph. Marie-Lou Chatel thus affirms that she does not seek to reduce the power of value of black and white but rather to lend it more soul and meaning. She notably cites Fernando Pessoa: "The value of things is not over time but in the intensity with which they emerge. That is why unforgettable moments, inexplicable phenomena, and incomparable individuals exist."
