“Lost Utopias” is a project by the photographer Jade Doskow, which aim is to preserve the global World’s Fair sites from an artistic, architectural and anthropological perspective.
Over the last decade Doskow captured buildings, monuments and landscapes that appear as dystopian scenes of decay and isolation. The photographer presents 70 images from 25 World’s Fair sites in her “Lost Utopias” book. In the opening essay, Professor in City & Regional Planning Jennifer Minner captures the tone of Doskow’s project: “Do the ghosts of fairs past haunt us or does their spirit inspire us? Are there lost utopias we might wish to reclaim?” “Lost Utopias” is published by Black Dog, and available to purchase here.
