  2. 2. The highly anticipated Discovery of King Tut exhibition in New York city opens this weekend and will run through May 1, 2016. It was nearly a century ago (1922) that archaeologist Howard Carter captured the world’s imagination with the astounding discovery of the undisturbed tomb of Tutankhamun. Harry Burton, an English Egyptologist and archaeological photographer, documented the remarkable excavation on behalf of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, taking over 1400 photos of the once-in-a-lifetime event. For the New York exhibition, British specialist studio Dynamichrome colorized a selection of Burton’s photos, each marking a milestone during the excavation. These will go on display in a special gallery, focusing on “the romance between New York and King Tut.” Jordan Lloyd and his team at Dynamichrome were kind enough to share the photos that will be on display at the exhibit. Below you will find the black and white and colorized versions below along with captions describing each photo.
