Lori Nix has lived most of her life in the rural Midwest. A childhood spent playing in open fields and witnessing countless storms and natural disasters has left her with a deep affection for the American landscape. This love of the land and sky in its endless variations, and a fascination with the absurdities of life, has developed into a series of constructed environments that form the basis of her photographs. Nix’s first series, Accidentally Kansas (1998-2000), recreated tornadoes, floods, insect infestations, and other bizarre events that punctuated her childhood in the Midwest. Devastation and loss were treated with a light handling, resulting in scenes that were more tall tale than true story.
