In "Scotlandfuturebog," photographers Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick construct a strange world 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, inhabitants of a planet emptied by an apocalyptic event. Left to perform obscure ceremonies in an intriguing but uninviting terrain, the bogdwellers exist in a historical vacuum. This is a first-edition slip-cased book, signed and numbered by the artists.
Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick have been collaborating for more than a decade. They have exhibited worldwide and their work is held in galleries, museums and private collections.
Scotlandfuturebog features a short story by Ben Marcus whose second novel, "Notable American Women," was published in 2002 by Vintage.

"It has often been seen that truth is stranger than fiction, for Kahn and Selesnick, when the two get mixed. . ." -- Miles Unger, The New York Times
"Their photographs of assemblages of people in 'apocalyptic' situations are both strange and beautiful, making no sense, and yet maintaining something of a narrative quality nonetheless. Be sure to check out this bizarre and lovely book." -- Jay Gardner -- Picture Magazine
"The volume--which includes a short story by Ben Marcus, and Kahn and Selesnick's own essay, both of which offer information, tongue-in-cheek, on the origins of the bogdwellers--is a stylishly packaged combination of social science, cleverly mocked, and the absurd." -- Art on Paper
