The photographic print, printed on quality papers with good inks, is capable of easily lasting 100 years and potentially a lot longer. Sure, prints can get lost, burned, torn, soaked and start to fade (which takes a very long time if printed in a quality manner). But if you treasure your images enough, a reasonable amount of care can preserve them forever simply by putting them in a portrait box, or a frame, or an album. Yes. That century-old tried and tested tradition.
