In the imagined world of Scotlandfuturebog , photographers Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick elegantly document a world both gloriously absurdist and sublime. The subjects of their images are mute bogdwellers, primitive creatures of the future, and the sole inhabitants of a post-apocalyptic Earth. Left to perform obscure ceremonies in a terrain that is as intriguing as it is uninviting, the bogdwellers exist in stark and beautiful landscapes. In the romance of this historical vacuum, common logic has no relevance. The viewer must relinquish the desire to contextualize, as creating rational pretexts for the masked characters and their strange rituals is futile. Eerie and stylish, these inventive images blur the lines between fact and fiction, and skew our sense of historical photographic truth as they explore the nexus between discovered and invented history. In this deluxe, limited-edition book, a number of the artists' stunning panoramic images are printed on vellum. The transparency of the material and the overlapping it creates between images reference the delicate separation between worlds real and imagined, past and future, us and the strange inhabitants of Kahn and Selesnick's world.Biografía del autor:
