Utopia ideals that can often lead to Dystopian Reality

Web link is definitely worth a look; artists featured in Utopian Mirage: Social Metaphors in Contemporary Photography and Film. The artists are predominantly looking at how our utopian ideals have been overtaken by the realities of urban decay, corruption, loss of innocence, disregard for natural resources and nature’s chaotic cycles. This link is useful as it also gives a list of artists and a short description of their work.
