“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.

The gorgeous framing is really makes this simple idea quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.
