Daguerreotypes are fragile items and in the wrong hands much damage can easily be done. Casey Waters has the temperament and proficiency to conserve these precious, historical jewels. He has an excellent understanding in what should be done to improve the image without causing detriment. To carefully clean or not to clean an image is an important judgment call. Also the task of sealing an image without having any dust under the glass is not an easy accomplishment as I well know from experience. It is wonderful to get back a great image that seems to have risen to a higher level of excellence after it leaves Casey’s hands. He, like his dad, has a great appreciation of the daguerreian art and it shows in his treatment of these mirrors from the past.
