No, there will be no photography in 100 years as our universal greed hatred and ignorance means we will carry on as we have since our beginning - This means our human population will suffer a collapse from the current 7 billion back to about 2 billion in the next decade or so - I don't see how photography will exist in such an environment
Two of the many clues for this outlook are the loss of calcium from marine organisms and the accelerating breakdown of organic soils across the sub antarctic area, which is releasing methane from the formerly frozen tundra, which is going to exacerbate the environmental problems which will affect our water supplies and cripple food production - The horn of Africa is just the beginning
I just can't see us changing our ways suddenly, but I felt that we had lost the battle against our worst behavior in about 1972
No, this is not typed as a joke and I deeply regret having children
Have a happy Christmas

Just look over the Sony NEX5n and NEX7 for a down payment on the future. Most current DSLRs resemble early automobiles whose designers just put an engine where the horse used to be--DSLRs just slapped a sensor where the film went. NO clue what, if any, place there will be for analog that far away.
My father is already almost frowning on my continued use of film, however he never was a photographer. As things are at the moment, it seems there's a trend back towards visual art (in all types) which is slowly growing. Makes one feel better about that.
I just hope that our art, being actual drawings and painting is still alive and well in the future.
