From television shows like Doomsday Preppers to the Walking Dead and speculation that the apocalypse is imminent in 2012, talk of disaster pervades social discourse.Artist Lori Nix is offering a preview of what the post-apocalyptic world would look like in her project called “The City.” 

She builds tiny models of real-life landscapes and then takes photographs.

Nix was kind of enough to share some of her work with us.
