worlds oldest living things

In the spirit of Rachel Sussman, an artist on a mission to photograph the oldest living things in the world, we have compiled our own gallery of trees, bushes, and coral that have stood the test of time.

From a 2000 year old gymnosperm plant in the Namib Desert to a clonal colony of Quaking Aspens that spans 80 millenniums, our very existence as humans, with a world-average lifespan of 66.12 years, is put into perspective.

And there’s more out there to be discovered! Please take a moment to consider giving to Ms. Sussman’s campaign to journey around the world, photographing living things older than 2,000 years!

Click here to check out the gallery!
