Product Description

Synopsis

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 bog dwellers, and the sole inhabitants of a postapocalyptic Earth. 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 line 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.
