It’s Justin Bieber … in full color!

This pic is believed to be the first published photo of the Biebs.

John Kastner — general manager of as the upcoming Justin Bieber museum exhibit, “Steps to Stardom” — tells The Blast that while the black and white version of the photo has been making the rounds for awhile, they needed the original negative in order to produce a huge image.

Kastner says the photo was taken in 2002 and appeared in a local paper, the Stratford Beacon Herald, and believes it was the first published image of Bieber.

But it was certainly not the last.
