Explore the post-apocalyptic world of artist Lori Nix

by Rachel Baker on March 26, 2014

Lori Nix is a New York based photographer who got something very special out of those diaramas we all had to make in school – she became an artist. Her specialty is constructing diaramas and then photographing them. She’s done some amazing work and I encourage you to check out her website: http://www.lorinix.net/index.html

The Mother Nature Network also has a photo blog post of the post-apocalyptic world that Ms. Nix has created. As a fan of the game Fallout, this post caught my attention. Its truly amazing, and more so, when you remember its a diarama.

From her website

I am often asked questions about the inspiration for my work as well as my working process. As a ‘non-traditional’ photographer (I construct my subject matter rather than go find it) people find it hard to grasp what exactly it is that I do. And the fact that it is all done in front of the camera, with no digital manipulation, adds its own set of challenges. Building materials, lighting, issues of scale and space all become significant when you are recreating the world on a table top. I’ve listed a few of the more frequently asked questions and my responses. Hope you enjoy.
