Hand-colored photos

March 14, 1996|By John Dorsey

In the 19th century, it was a common practice to hand-color prints, and it was done to photographs, too. More recently, the practice has been revived by photographers who, rather than have someone else do the coloring, do it themselves as an enhancement and transformation of their black and white photography.

Jenifer Ganzer has been hand-coloring her photographs for 10 years with photo oils, colored pencils and calligraphic pens. A show of her colored photographs of urban and rural areas of Maryland has opened at the Top of the World Trade Center gallery at the Inner Harbor.

At the Top of the World Trade Center Gallery, 401 E. Pratt St., through April 7. 10 a.m. to 5: 30 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, noon to 5: 30 p.m. Sundays; ticket sales end a half-hour before closing. Call (410) 837-4515.
