Even though we know that people who existed a hundred years ago were normal humans just like us, it can be hard to relate to them when we only see them in black and white or low-saturation photos. Now, though, a Russian artist named Olga Sherinina, or “Klimbim,” has brought the past to life by colorizing old photos. Her subjects range from everyday people to royalty to Hollywood stars, and each one looks like they could’ve been plucked right out of modern-day society after she’s done with the photos.

Check out some of her work on old cinema royalty:
