Discuss a photographer #9 - Lori Nix

Lori Nix describes herself as a "faux landscape photographer." She uses dioramas to recreate memories and express her personal obsessions. Here's the series, Lost:

The idea of creating the photo you want to see versus recording what you find is a wide-ranging discussion. We might agree that any removal or addition of elements into a photo violates its integrity and turns it into illustration, but even that gets muddied by simple things like cleaning up bottles from a lakeshore before photographing it. That's a long way from dioramas, but trying to shape the image to our liking goes back to the beginning of photography and carries on with the constructed photos of Jeff Wall and digital tools like Luminar sky replacement.

If you like what Lori Nix is doing, definitely look at her other series, read her bio and Wikipedia entry. If you'd rather not discuss, just leave a 1-5 star/asterisk rating in the subject line.
