2012-05-18-worldsfairparks.jpgWorld's Fairs typically were used by the hosting city as a reason to develop an urban site that was previously unused. Some of these sites were marshes, forests, or simply sprawling fields. A lot of my photographs examine a return to nature as weeds and plants would overgrow the exposition pavilions; in many cases, there was no real concrete proof that this huge event ever took place, except for the magnificent park that was developed as a direct result.
