Covid-19 Update

Max are pleased to confirm that our teams are still fully operational in line with the latest government guidelines. This includes our off-site team at ONS. We do understand, however, that for many businesses and institutions this is unfortunately still not the case. We continue to wish you well during this difficult period and look forward to somewhat easier times, hopefully by Spring 2021.

If you would like to schedule a call for a future date, please complete our contact form indicating a preferred day. We have decided to freeze our prices until May 1st 2021 to ensure that our customers are not penalised by the ongoing restrictions. We may decide to extend this date further still.

In the meantime, please do take a look at our podcasts page . The passion, enthusiasm and insight from our guest speakers has been inspirational, especially given the circumstances.

Photographic Conservation
Max Communications' conservation specialists at work

All photographs deteriorate over time and using the correct photographic conservation techniques is therefore essential. The deterioration will accelerate if the photographs are not stored in the correct conditions. These conditions will vary depending on the original format e.g. print, glass-plate or film.

In partnership with an award-winning photographic materials conservator, Max has now carried out a number of photographic preservation assessments of photographic archives. The aim of the assessment is to determine the current condition of the photographic collection and to recommend a series of steps to ensure its long-term care.

In addition to the preservation reviews, we are able to repair and conserve original photographic material. Repairs of original material can range from simple tears to more complex treatments such as stain removal or even total restoration of photographs that have suffered significant damage from cellulose acetate film deterioration, more commonly known as ‘vinegar syndrome’.

Whatever your photographic conservation needs, you can be confident that we have the expertise to advise you.

Collections on which we have undertaken full preservation assessments for photographic conservation purposes include:

News International
Cartier
Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineer Corp.
