Selected works from Project Astoria: Test 01 by LA-based photographer Todd Baxter

"Project Astoria: Test 01, an 11-image photo series, is the first of several planned shows for Baxter’s latest multi-series effort, Project Astoria. Test 01 is an introduction to the people, animals, and objects of the fictional Astoria System, the retro-futuristic backdrop of on-going multi-media exploration of dystopia and coming-of-age."
