Fifteen years old with a taste for foot-jamming the thin slice between awake and asleep, Emmet Thomas has made his name as a fearlessly stylish up-and-coming rider. Expect him.
It’s really easy to get lost in the abyss that is Reddit. They’ve created a virtual sandbox for all of the world’s nerds to congregate in niché-y bliss. I’m one of those nerds. I’m addicted to the great equalizer: slash-R-slash. It doesn’t matter if your hobby is Nascar or slot cars, there is a place for you somewhere in the cracks and crevices of Reddit.
“/SUB/JECTS” is my way to share with you some of these pockets of the Internet that hold something truly precious: a group of authentic human beings acting on their passion. Let’s start with “Colorized History.”
Colorized History was formed 11 months ago by Reddit user “Zuzahin.” The purpose of the endeavor is to breathe life back into photos both long forgotten and eternally recognizable.
The subreddit is piloted by an approved list of contributors that are also available for private commissions. So, if you’re interested in enlisting the service of one of these artists, you can learn more here.
