Life Magazine: Honoring Quaid-e-Azam 1947

This is the first color photo I know of the great founder of Pakistan: Mohammad Ali Jinnah.

Ofcorse it’s a Perfectlymadebirds creation rendered from an old black and white photo I recently stumble upon which you can see the original here:… pakistani&prev=/images?q=sitting+pakistani&um=1&hl=en& client=safari&rls=en-us&sa=G

When I came across this old black and white photo I was stunned, it was the best photo to date I have seen of the founder. I knew that none existed of the great founder in color so I decided to create an ultra enhanced color version by hand based on this original 1947 photo by Photographer Margaret Bourke while Mohammad Ali Jinnah was seated in his chair.

I hope you enjoy this. It was very difficult to produce and labor intensive to produce the very first color photo of the great founder. I also added created the whole left third of the photo from scratch which did not exist either from the original. You can share this with colorization and enhancement restoration credit to me however please do not use this or modify it without permission.
