From Andrea Blanch’s interview for Musée Magazine:
AB: What do you feel is the difference between creating your subject matter and finding it out in the world?
LN: Well, you have more control, for one thing, so you can direct exactly what the viewer is going to see. What’s interesting about these models is I only build them from one vantage point; that of the camera lens. If you take two steps to either side you will see the building materials I never finished. You will see hot glue and clamps and everything else. There is a type of photography that looks a lot like mine for urban explorers. It’s these people going into abandoned spaces all through U.S. and E.U. and photographing. Do I really want to be an urban explorer in New York City? No. I’m not a fan of rats or smelly places.
