In this fascinating collection of photographs, the Belgian artist Ives Maes explores the architecture of world expos. He sets the faded glory of these sites against the ambitious and utopian project, full of promise, represented by the first world exhibition.

Maes shows how time has taken its toll on these architectural monuments and pavilions, now decayed, abandoned, or torn from their original context. In this comprehensive book, Maes’s photographs are set alongside images of the Great Exhibition in London (1851) through to the most recent expo in Shanghai (2010).

The images are accompanied by essays from Anna Jackson, Elena Filipovic and Catherine L. Futter on the history of world fairs, the role of photography and the sculptural character of Maes’s photographic work.
