In 2004, Brooklyn-based artist Rachel Sussman embarked on the photographic quest of a lifetime: to document the oldest living things in the world. Now, a decade later, Sussman is still going strong, her journey having taken her to some of the harshest and most remote landscapes, from the Mojave Desert to Antarctica to the Australian Outback. Her unique portraits reveal the living history of our planet as well as what we stand to lose in the future, thanks to climate change and human encroachment.

Photographer Charles H. Traub recently released this beautiful series of work, Dolce Via, that transports viewers back in time to Italy in the 1980s. Throughout the decade, the artist frequently visited Italy and captured candid moments of people and places through his lens. The title of the series is a play on dolce vita (“the sweet life”). With one letter missing, Traub’s title translates to “the sweet way.”
