Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The City is artist Lori Nix's first monograph. Limited to 1,200 copies and published by Decode Books, it's 76 pages with 37 reproductions of Nix's photographs made since 2005. The cover image, Library, is stunning and tells you everything you need to know about the rest of the images contained within. The titular library is in the midst of prolonged decay; three trees, possibly aspens, are growing up from the ground, fed natural light and presumably water, through a gaping hole in the roof of the structure. The decay of the library itself is in various stages: some of the art on the wall isn't holding up too well, and the walls themselves are discoloring. Dust covers everything, and library chairs are scattered as if they were hastily abandoned before the unknown cataclysm that precipitated the abandonment, and thus decay, of the place.

Riassunto: Over the past eight years, Lori Nix (born 1969) has created meticulously detailed model environments and then photographed them--locations within a fictional city that celebrate modern culture, knowledge and innovation. But her monuments of civilization are abandoned, in a state of ruin where nature has begun to repopulate the spaces. "I am fascinated, maybe even a little obsessed, with the idea of the apocalypse. In addition to my childhood experiences growing up with natural disasters in Kansas, I also watched disaster flicks in the 1970s. Each of these experiences has greatly influenced my photographic work." Nix considers herself a "faux landscape photographer" and spends months building the complex spaces before photographing them. As critic Sidney Lawrence wrote in Art in America: "Oddly endearing, terrifying and often electrifyingly plausible, [Nix's tableaux] prod us to ponder the fact that, like it or not, our fate is uncertain."
