Photographer Lori Nix

A reader sent me a link to the work of photographer Lori Nix, an artist who:
photograph[s] miniatures and models which illuminate her interest in the disaster movies of the 1970s and her memories of growing up in Kansas—a place that seems to attract disasters like no other. In her series titled Accidentally Kansas Nix creates scenes of floods, tornadoes, snow storms, lightning strikes, and insect infestations, all epic and defining events recalled from her formative years in rural Kansas.
These are some really stunning photos that bring together two of my favorite thing. desolate/broken/abandoned spaces and meticulous miniatures.
