jade doskow: lost utopias

Since 2007 Jade Doskow has been traveling the world and photographing the remaining art, architecture, and landscape of World’s Fairs. She began the project after traveling to Spain, the idea sparked by the surreal remains of the 1992 World Expo in Seville. Since then she has photographed sites in Seville (1992), Barcelona (1929), Paris (1889 and 1937), Brussels (1897, 1935, 1958), New York (1939, 1964), Chicago (1893,1933), Philadelphia (1876), Buffalo (1901), Seattle (1909, 1962), Spokane (1974), Knoxville (1982), Nashville (1897), St. Louis (1904), New Orleans (1884, 1984), San Francisco (1915, 1939), San Diego (1915), Vancouver (1986), Montréal (1967), and San Antonio (1968).
