Over the past decade, artist Rachel Sussman has researched, worked with biologists, and traveled the world to photograph continuously living organisms that are 2,000 years old and older. Spanning from Antarctica to Greenland, the Mojave Desert to the Australian Outback, the result is a stunning and unique visual collection of ancient organisms.
The Indian paintbrush is also known as the common red paintbrush and is commonly referred to as prairie fire. The flowers can be eaten but due to high selenium concentrations from the soil their roots and green parts can be potentially toxic. This photo was taken while hiking the Widow Maker trail in southern Alberta.
