Brothers Khodi and Reza Feiz at Reza’s studio, Phase Design, for Dwell’s February 2014 issue

Ruben Ireland’s work often features solitary women, quietly imposing animals and minimalistic environments, conveying a sense of inner peace, curiosity and understanding whilst exploring a range of subjects surrounding life, death, love, loss, fear and serenity.

"In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality."—Alfred Stieglitz
It is one thing to have an idea, and quite another to realize it. The artist Lori Nix sees the world her own way. In fact, she constructs it. These images may look like post-apocalyptic, photoshopped phantasms, but they are each painstakingly and time-consumingly made, with each diorama taking up to 7 months to complete.
By shooting these handcrafted sets with an 8 x 10 camera, Nix is able to reveal, in camera, the considerable detail in her work. In these scenes void of humans, Mother Nature’s irrepressible power slowly reclaims what’s left behind. And in doing so, Nix reminds us of our own deleterious impact on the environment, and what our future could hold. —Lane Nevares
