Since 2007, Jade Doskow has been photographing the remains of World’s Fair Sites -- those once iconic spots that displayed the ambitions and ideals of their eras, yet now are often forgotten and left to decay. For the 50th anniversary of the 1964 World’s Fair in New York (in just a few weeks time), Doskow has a new goal: to shoot all the iconic North American fair sites, from Seattle’s Space Needle to San Francisco’s Treasure Island.

To do so, she’s launched a Kickstarter campaign: LOST UTOPIAS. Scroll down to to preview some of the images Doskow has already captured. To support LOST UTOPIAS at Kickstarter (the deadline’s July 23) and learn more about the nostalgic project, head here.
