In an imagined world, photographers Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick construct a strange and beautiful environment that they describe as being of infinite promise that cannot possibly be described or communicated except by direct experience. The characters we meet are bogdwellers, sole inhabitants of a planet emptied by an apocalyptic event. Left to perform obscure ceremonies in a terrain that is as intriguing as it is uninviting, the bogdwellers exist in a historical vacuum. Scotlandfuturebog skews our sense of photographic truth as it explores the nexus between discovered and invented history. Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick, born in New York City and London, respectively, have been collaborating for more than a decade. They have exhibited internationally, in such galleries as Monique Knowlton, New York, Pepper Gallery, Boston, and The Royal Photographic Society, Bath, England. Their work is held in the collections of The National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institute, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, as well as many private collections.
