Christian Cotroneo writes in The Huffington Post Canada:

The subway hasn’t been running for some time.

So long, in fact, a desert has sprung up around the marooned relic of public transit, while a tattered cityscape looms in the distant background.

The end of the world, it seems, isn’t kind to the works of man.

Mother Nature, however, abides.

Welcome to Lori Nix’s apocalyptic dollhouse — a stunning collection of miniatures depicting scenes from the end of days.

Each diorama in The City is built from scratch, taking an average of seven months to complete, before Nix finally captures the carnage with a photograph.

Nix tells The Huffington Post Canada she comes by her apocalyptic leanings honestly, having grown up in rural Kansas, “where Mother Nature was an everyday powerful force.”

“Each season would bring its own little natural disaster, tornadoes, hail storms, blizzards, drought and the seasonal insect infestation.”
