The Surreal Dioramic World of Photographer Lori Nix

Brooklyn photographer Lori Nix isn’t your traditional photographer. She spends weeks, even months, hand-fashioning elaborate tabletop dioramas specifically to capture in just the right light with her camera. Without the aid of digital manipulations, Nix goes one step further and uses an old-fashioned 8 X 10 large format camera to shoot her pieces. All of her effort pays off big, as the results are beautiful, as well as mysterious and sometimes, haunting.
