Incredible Miniature 1900’s Photography Studio

1 October 2017

It took miniature maker Ali Alamedy 9 months to create this stunning 1900’s miniature photography studio.

Ali spent many long hours researching so that the details would be as accurate as possible. He went on to make over 100 era-accurate items from scratch, using hundreds of metres of wood as well as other materials like plastic, copper and paper.
“The hardest part”, Ali writes, “was how to recall the spirit of such place in a small scale.” We think he’s done an amazing job!

The end of the world – dolls’ house size

14 August 2012

American-born photo-artist Lori Nix grew up in Kansas with a love of 1970s cinema such as ‘Logan’s Run’, ‘The Towering Inferno’ and ‘Planet of the Apes’. 

These early influences can be seen today in the amazing miniature dioramas which she painstakingly creates and photographs.

An article in the Daily Mail provides some splendid examples of Lori’s work which features scenes of a post-apocalyptic world.

Abandoned churches, bars, libraries and beauty parlours are shown slowly falling apart and in the process of being reclaimed by nature with weeds, trees and vines growing in the derelict interiors.
“It takes about seven months to complete a diorama, but I'm working on two to three at a time. I make about three new images a year if I'm lucky and focused,” Lori explains.
“Every room in my apartment is devoted to the process of building models and photographing them.
'I have a couple of power saws sitting on and under the kitchen table, more power tools in the equipment room and a living room full of work tables and lots of debris.”
Lori’s devotion to her art can be seen in her wonderful work and you might just find her dioramas a source of inspiration for your own creativity.
