Post-Apocalyptic Miniatures by Lori Nix and Kathleen Gerber

These stunningly detailed miniatures are dioramas showing post-apocalyptic wastelands, full of jungle overgrowth, and decay. Created by Lori Nix and Kathleen Gerber, each scene can take up to seven months to build, with a great attention to detail, and painstaking craftsmanship. Made from cardboard, foam, glue and other impermanent materials, the scenes are entirely recycled after they’re photographed.  Their latest series is entitled Empire, and took many years to complete.  Shown here are scenes from Empire and The City. Via Colossal:


Empire presents a world transformed by climate uncertainty and a shifting social order as it stumbles towards a new kind of frontier,” the pair explain in a statement. “These places are eerily beautiful but also unsettling in their stillness and silence. Long ago, man entered the landscape and forced nature to his will. Once grand and emblematic of strength and prosperity, these landscapes now appear abused and in decay, and it is uncertain how they will continue to (d)evolve.”
