From Sarah Boboltz’s story for PSFK:
Imagining a future in which New York City’s inhabitants have mysteriously disappeared — abducted by extraterrestrials, fled in wake of a nuclear accident, perished in a second black plague, or any other sinister possibility — Lori Nix embarked on a staged photography project entitled “The City.”
That was in 2005. Nix has worked slowly on this project, crafting each image by hand out of cardboard, clay, and a variety of other materials. Each one takes about seven months to complete, with two to three weeks devoted to capturing the right shot.
