Since 2007, American photographer Jade Doskow has been documenting the remains of World s Fair sites, once iconic global attractions that have often been repurposed for less noble aspirations or neglected and fallen into decay. 'Lost Utopias' brings together the substantial body of work that Doskow has completed over the past decade, including iconic monuments such as the Seattle Space Needle, the Eiffel Tower, Brussels Palais des Expositions and New York s Unisphere. Doskow s large-scale colour photographs poignantly illustrate the utopian architecture and art that has surrounded the World s Fairs, across both the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Presented in a handsome, large-scale hardback book, Doskow s work carries a unique sense of both grandeur and dreaminess, whilst also reflecting upon the often temporary purposes that these structures once held.
