Rizal’s iconic photograph circa 1890 (Spain). The photo on the right is an early attempt by the PCDSPO to add color to black and white historic photographs. [One more Rizal-in-color here.] The PCDSPO aims to a vibrant new life to the iconic pictures, yet remain faithful to the integrity of the original.

The Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Officehas embarked on an exciting new project to digitally colorize archival photos of Philippine history. Momentous occasions caught in iconic black and white photographs are now made even more remarkable, rendered in color. In bringing a vibrant new life to these pictures, but remaining faithful to the integrity of the original, we hope to revive interest in the colorful tapestry of the Philippine narrative.
