Abandoned urban spaces: a photo series by Lori Nix

Lori Nix is a non-traditional photographer who is best known for her meticulously constructed subject matter. She was born in Kansas and studied ceramics and photography. Nix uses background to hand-construct her scenery and various methods of lighting, scale, and materials to recreate visions she has for her photos.

Her project, The City, is a representation of a city that no longer has any human inhabitants. Nix’s stunning work depicts curious scenes of danger and disaster: abandoned spaces, architecture in a state of extreme deterioration, natural calamities, and more. The mysterious places she captures with her 8×10 large format camera aren’t actually found locations but they’re meticulously fabricated miniature dioramas.
