Lori Nix has a morbid imagination. The photographer has been fascinated with the end of the world for as long as she can remember, and she says it may have to do with growing up in rural Kansas.
“I’ve been in tornadoes, floods, blizzards,” Nix told Business Insider. “I grew up surrounded by disaster.”
Nix’s project “The City” portrays a world where some disaster has caused humans to depart for an unseen destination. What’s left behind are dilapidated structures— art museums, theaters, laundromats, bars, libraries — that no longer function and are slowly being reclaimed by Mother Nature.
