A visit to the Brooklyn studio of Lori Nix who photographs epic scenes of destruction and grandeur, natural wonders and glittering metropolises, magnificent architecture and heroic landscapes that all have one thing in common—they’re all fake. Lori gives us a tour behind the artifice, showing us how she meticulously crafts the miniature sets using found objects and model-making materials.
Wooo this is really great, she talks about lying to the viewer and why she uses miniatures, and I just love it. My favorite shot is at the end with her cat and some mini vacuums.
Minimiam is a photography project by a husband-and-wife duo, consisting of Akiko Ida and Pierre Javelle. The idea of the project is to portray everyday life in a miniature scale, with fantastic settings and backdrops. Who hasn’t spend their childhood imagining themselves skiing down the slopes of an ice-cream sundae, or hiding away in a piece of cheese?
