About Jade Doskow

Architectural and landscape photographer Jade Doskow is known for her rigorously composed and eerily poetic images that examine the intersection of man, nature, and time. She’s best known for her “World’s Fair Project,” for which she traveled the world to photograph architectural sites of 19th- and 20th-century world’s fair expositions, like Buckminster Fuller’s Geodesic Dome in Montréal and Philip Johnson’s New York State Pavilion in Queens. “A lot of my photographs examine a return to nature as weeds and plants would overgrow the exposition pavilions,” she says. “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.” With her eye for poignancy and humanity in the most desolate of architecture and urban sprawl, Doskow has also photographed series in New York neighborhoods like Red Hook and the Lower East Side. Early in her career, she worked as a printer for the like-minded photographers Andrew Moore and Robert Polidori.
