Lori Nix b. 1969 is a photographer from Brooklyn, NY who has been building detailed dioramas and then photographing them since the early 1990s, and whose work has been widely collected and exhibited internationally.
Nix considers herself a “faux landscape photographer,”and her work is influenced by extreme weather and disaster films. She works without digital manipulation, using miniatures and models to create surreal scenes and landscapes, building dioramas that range from 20 inches to six feet in diameter. They take several months to build, and two to three weeks to photograph, using a large format 8 × 10 film camera
Malena Valcarcelis a Spanish artist based on the Mediterranean Coast, working for years in the paper field, using it to create Book Sculptures, Paper Jewellery and elaborated constructions.
I live in Alicante - Spain, next to the beautiful and warm Mediterranean Sea. I was born in Tenerife – Canary Islands where I grew up without losing sight of the sea. I actually have no formal training in anything to do with paper or my paper art established work, I have learnt everything myself. I have tried many areas creatively over the years and now I find myself working with paper which I adore.
