Lori Nix’s diorama photography

When I was a kid, I had a dog-eared copy of Shep Paine’s How to Build Dioramas that I spent countless blissful hours poring over and dreaming about. Lori Nix’s work enthralls me in just the same way, and for most of the same reasons.

I’m blown away by Lori Nix’s post-Apocalyptic diorama photographs. (Her “Unnatural History” series, which shows a natural history museum askew, is also fabulous.) She builds each diorama from scratch over about seven months and then spends up to three weeks perfecting the lighting and placement of the props. I love this quote from her FAQ: “I have miniature power tools throughout the apartment, a chop saw under the kitchen table, a miniature table saw on top.”
