Otherworldly Photos of What the Future Was Supposed to Look Like


For her new monograph “Lost Utopias,” photographer Jade Doskow spent nine years visiting former World’s Fairs, from the Eiffel Tower to the Space Needle. What she found were grandiose engineering marvels, once beacons of the future, now beginning to gray as they enter their twilight years. The quietness of her photos captures the effect of time on architecture and ideology, reminding readers that consensus in both arenas remains elusive.
“Lost Utopias” will be published by Black Dog Publishing on October 14.
