Lost Utopias by Jade Doskow



Since 2007, photographer Jade Doskow travels around the world looking for the remnants of past World Fairs.

Her pictures, collected intohttps://black-dog-publishing.myshopify.com/products/lost-utopias a book entitled Lost Utopias, offer us a beautiful and poetic reflexion on the passing of time and the tension between the ephemeral and the permanent.
