Dioramas by Lori Nix

Dioramas by photographer Lori Nix
“The City”, by Lori Nix. It’s just not fair to simply label her a photographer when you consider that what you’re actually looking at is an insanely detailed hand-built diorama. Each diorama takes about seven months to build and photograph, and they range from about half a metre to nearly two metres in diameter. She shoots the scenes with an 8×10 medium format camera. See more below!

  • TOASTRANDER

    wow.

  • I went to her exhibition at bau xi gallery in Toronto it is great work.

    • was it the photos or the dioramas themselves?

  • Amazing. Somehow, bringing the scale down to a diorama size gives a great sense of surrealism. Reminds me very much of Dali.
