All light gradually destroys all photographs whether they were produced digitally, by gelatin-silver, Polaroid or other methods. High humidity and temperatures also deteriorates photographs.  With that in mind, most of us buy art to be displayed and enjoyed so a few precautions will maximize the life of a photograph.

    1. When matting and framing the print, use only acid-free archival materials and special UV-plastic or glass.

    2. Display your art work in a low-humidity environment.

    3. Never display your artwork in direct sunlight or fluorescent light which has ultraviolet rays that will fade or discolor photographs.

    4. When handling prints, avoid touching the surface of the picture.
