French, Paris-based photogrpaher Julien Mauve’s latest series What’s Left Of Utopia brings to life images that show an impoverished urban landscape where the desolate cityscape is a direct result of the inhumanity of the modern built world. Industrial structures, abandoned towers and neglected residential complexes are highlighted for their destructive and toxic affliction on space and humanity. In this mixture of grief and hope, the characters appear on the point of disappearing within the fog that engulfs those urban utopias, considered at the time of construction to be symbols of progress. Disembodied witnesses, they become actors in a play of which the ending is uncertain.
