Entry Description: This is an introduction to the people, animals, and objects of the Astoria system, the retro-futuristic backdrop for my exploration of dystopia and coming-of-age.
The Astoria System is a new planet and its moons, discovered hidden within our Sun's system by an amateur astronomer in Astoria, Illinois, in the 1920's. Its two moons are found to be habitable and are colonized in the early 70’s.
Fifteen years later, the first generation of Astoria youth are ascending into adulthood. The images follow them as they explore and grow in their world, more familiar to them than Earth could ever be.
