The daguerreotype is one of the earliest types of photograph in which
the image is exposed directly onto a mirror-polished surface of silver
bearing a coating of silver halide particles deposited by iodine vapor.
Using an elegant yet highly dangerous technique, Levon Register II is
one of very few people in the world who can recreate these beautiful
works of art.
In today's world, with everything geared to the speed of electrons,
computers and cable technology, one gets the feeling that life is only
a fleeting speck of light. How does one slow down this
fast paced world to absorb the beauty that abounds within this place?
One answer might be in the way we record what we see or feel. For me,
thanks to L.J.M. Daguerre, I have chosen to seize light.
