Lori Nix and Kathleen Gerber have collaborated on dioramas and miniatures for over fourteen years; their work has primarily been the subject matter for Nix's fine art photography. Her images of faux landscapes and gritty urban interiors have gained wide acclaim in both the U.S. and Europe, and she is a 2014 Guggenheim Fellow in photography.
Commercially, their photos of miniature dioramas have graced numerous book covers including those of Dave Eggers, and album covers by The Digg and Fountains of Wayne. The duo has illustrated stories for numerous magazines including Field and Stream, O Magazine, and New York Magazine and created the photo for the July 7/July 14 2014 cover for Time magazine.
When you first glance their work, you are not sure if you are looking at a real photograph or even a painting. The attention to detail and the patience it takes to create these is unbelievable.
