From Laura Caseley’s article for ViralNova:
She isn’t the type of photographer to simply go out with a camera and capture the world. Instead, Nix builds her own worlds. Each pile of rubble, overturned car, and eerily-lit window was carefully placed by Nix herself. She uses model-building materials and creates small-scale dioramas for her photos. While she takes inspiration from her current home in New York City, she knows that street or studio photography simply isn’t her bag. “My strength lies in my ability to build and construct my world rather than seek out an existing world,” she says. By building the scenes, she’s in control of exactly the feeling she wants to portray.
