LIFE – BEFORE AND AFTER D-DAY: Rare colour photos








“It’s no mystery why images of unremitting violence spring to mind when one hears the deceptively simple term, “D-Day.” We’ve all seen — in photos, movies, old news reels — what happened on the beaches of Normandy (codenamed Omaha, Utah, Juno, Gold and Sword) as the Allies unleashed an historic assault against German defenses on June 6, 1944.

But in color photos taken before and after the invasion, LIFE’s Frank Scherschel captured countless other, lesser-known scenes from the run-up to the onslaught and the heady weeks after: American troops training in small English towns; the French countryside, implausibly lush after the spectral landscape of the beachheads; the reception GIs enjoyed en route to the capital; the jubilant liberation of Paris itself.

As presented here, in masterfully restored color, Scherschel’s pictures feel at-once profoundly familiar and somehow utterly, vividly new.”

Incredible, see the full set here.

Tilt

Here, graffiti artist Tilt has created his own room inside the Au Vieux Panier hotel in Marseille, France. One half of the room is covered in Tilt’s incredibly colourful work while the other in a beautiful contrast is simply left white. The hotel boasts 5 rooms where artists are invited to get creative in whatever way they feel possible.
