Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick have been photographic collaborators for the past 10 years. A new Aperture monograph has just been published and a travelling exhibition is now underway featuring their post-apocalyptic photographs. "It could be said that the bleak world of the bogdwellers is an eden, a paradise, a return to man's nature state before the fall, but this would fail to portray the infinite darkness that permeates the brooding silences of their world. In fact the bogdwellers resemble nothing so much as a people waiting for the apocalypse to be visited upon them, left mute in the face of its exorable descent."-from the exhibition. This impressive book, the first on their work, is superbly printed and comes housed in a cloth slipcase. The limited edition comes with an archival digital print, pictured here.
