Lori Nix - Post Apocalyptic Diorama

I thought I posted this here before but apparently I haven't!. Ceck out the Post Apocalyptic dioramas of Lori Nix, which I found via the art blog, hey mammoth.

From Hey Mammoth:
The City is the newest series by photographer Lori Nix. Over the course of a 7 month period Nix meticulously crafted each of these tiny rooms (dioramas) by hand and slowly created the lighting for the each shot. I love it when a photographer will spend a tremendous amount of time creating a set or in this case a diorama. For me, there’s something special about putting yourself into the image long before the image has even been captured — doing this creates a connection between the photographer and the image that you cannot get any other way.

 this last one reminds me of an abandoned vault from the original fallout computer games :
