The oldest living creatures in the world
Rachel Sussman has photographed the oldest living creatures in the world. She has published a book of her photos that can be purchased online.
The American photographer Rachel Sussman, 39 years old, has gone around the world to take pictures of the oldest living creatures of the world that are more than two thousand years old. She saw a seagrass of 100 thousand years, a tree (a spruce) of 9,550 years in Sweden and a 5,500-year-old antarctic moss.
The pictures were gathered in a photographic book entitled The oldest living things in the World after ten years of collaboration between different biologists who helped her contextualize the species found, by classifying and indicating their position in space and time.
