In 1999, Lori Nix transplanted herself to New York City bringing an urban feel to her photos. In the series, Some Other Place (2000-2002), neighborhood sidewalks, city parks, and forays into the wilderness were reconstructed, but with a darker sensibility than the earlier series. Her subdued color palette and increasingly complex compositions also reflect this change. In “Uranium Extraction Plant,” an eerily glowing factory perches on the edge of a cliff while translucent deer stand quietly in the stream below. “Floater” is at first glance a pleasant, bucolic scene. But on closer inspection, a suspicious shape can be found floating in the cattails in the foreground.
