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. This staged photography features 360 degree panoramas that create a cinematic sense of place and alter the sense of time through their placement of costumes, props, and choice of color.
The two artists met at the Washington University in St. Louis where both studied photography. Kahn currently resides in Manhattan while Selesnick lives in Brooklyn. Both are now represented by Bernstein and Andriulli. To see more of their work click here.

Roy Zipstein traveled to Durban, South Africa to photograph the newly constructed Moses Mabhida Stadium for an architectural feature in SPREAD|Artculture magazine. Of the five stadiums built for the FIFA World Cup 2010, the Moses Mabhida Stadium has the largest capacity at 70,000 seats. The only larger World Cup stadium is the renovated Soccer City in Johannesburg.
The Moses Mabhida Stadium’s key feature is the expansive 350 meter arch that rises 106 meter above the pitch at the highest point. The arch is said to represent a divided nation becoming united, its design inspired by the South African flag. Construction began in 2007 and was completed November, 2009, lead by the consulting German architectural firm von Gerkan, Marg and Partners (gmp). The Ibhola Lethu Consortium (ILC) was responsible for the design and project management of the stadium. Schlaic, Bergermann und Partner (sbp) served as conceptual structural engineers. 32 South African architectural firms were also enlisted.
