Just for fun: Oldest living things on Earth

Rachel Sussman is an artist who has made it her life’s mission to photograph the oldest living things on Earth. To that end, she has traveled all around the world, categorizing organisms that have lived for over 2000 years.

Here’s an example of her work: a 2000 year old sunland baobab tree from Limpopo Province, South Africa.


You can view the rest of her portfolio, read her blog, or see a map showing where she found the various organisms. Better yet, watch her TED talk, below.
