Richard Selesnick and Nicholas Kahn have been collaborating as Kahn/Selesnick since 1988 on a series of complex narrative photo-novellas and sculptural installations. Their work has evolved into a series of projects involving fictional attributions, narratives, and sculpture. Their staged photography features 360 degree panoramas that create a cinematic sense of place. Placed with their costumes, props, and choice of color, their photographers alter the sense of time. Kahn & Selesnick have held artist residencies at Addison Gallery of American Art in Massachusetts, the Djerrasi Artist Program in California, and Toni Morrison’s Atelier Program at Princeton University. Their solo exhibitions include Schottensumpfkunftig, The REC, Past-Future, Scotlandfuturebog, City of Salt, The Apollo Prophecies, Eisbergfreistadt, and more. The two artists met at the Washington University in St. Louis where both studied photography; they currently reside in New York. Nicholas Kahn lives in a converted wooden Dutch church overlooking the Hudson River, and Richard Selesnick lives in a well-gardened townhouse in Brooklyn built atop a former bog. They are represented by Bernstein & Andriulli.
