DESCRIPTION

Lori Nix meticulously constructs three-dimensional miniature dioramas by hand and captures her images using a large-format film camera. These scenes of an imagined post-apocalyptic world are infused with dark humour and irony. Through the photographic process, the fictional scene is transformed into a surreal space, where scale, perspective and the document of the photograph create a tension between the material reality of the scene and the impossibility of the depicted narrative.
