The artist Lori Nix, who  considers herself a “faux landscape photographer,” spends months constructing tiny dioramas out of cardboard, glue, and point—only to destroy them. Collected in The City, a recently published book, her photographs of these crumbling miniature buildings imagine a post-apocalypic future, room by room. All images courtesy of Decode Books.
