Lori Nix | Imagined cities in decay

I recently discovered the surreal and beautiful photography of Lori Nix. Lori creates magical worlds in front of her camera. Here she describes her work…

“In my newest body of work “The City” I have imagined a city of our future, where something either natural or as the result of mankind, has emptied the city of it’s human inhabitants.

I love the care taken to create this work. You can also read Lori’s blog here.
