The Dead Sea is a place of surreal beauty and unbelievable scope. It is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Israel and The Middle East and is visited by millions per annum. This magnificent and historic salt lake may not be around for much longer due to a number of coinciding factors and dangerous repercussions. Lost Paradise is a visual montage of the effects of what careless actions and unaddressed issues can have on a place. A sad, yet eye opening example of how years of carelessness can firmly impact a unique and natural landscape.
