Rachel Sussman has photographed some of the Earth’s oldest living organisms, describing her project as “a battle to stay in deep time.” Of the thirty ancient living things that she’s photographed, two have since died.

Gross insect fact o’ the day: the Cicada-killer wasp

A female flies out and inspects trees until she finds a cicada. After she stings it, the cicada becomes paralyzed within one minute. The wasp then grasps the base of the wings of the cicada with her middle legs, and flies with the cicada in an upside-down position back to her burrow. ….The cicada killer’s venom preserves the cicada, which will live in a paralyzed state twice as long as an unstung, unfed cicada. Within two weeks the [wasp] larvae have eaten the paralyzed cicadas and grown into prepupae, the form in which they will spend the winter.

Dream scenes from Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni.

mymodernmet:

In 2006, Tokyo-based photographer Asako Shimizu was finally able to fulfill her dream of traveling to Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni, the largest salt flat in the world. There, inspired by the spectacular image of the seemingly endless horizon, as well as her relationship with the Earth, Shimizu captured a series of stunning photographs titled On Her Skin.
