Over a span of 6 years, artist Lauren Orchowski drove throughout North America documenting the Cold War-era rocket ship playgrounds with her 8 x 10 view camera. With photographs created in both black and white and color, the viewer is invited to contemplate Utopia, revisit their childhood, or question why they have not yet signed up for space camp. This collection of images is also accompanied by text offering insight to the evolution of the project.
In 2010 the book was awarded 2nd Runner Up in the Portfolio category of the Photography Book Now competition.

Thanks for your memory! I would climb up to the top of every rocket, before or after I had made the image, and do the same thing.

I played on a rocket just like the ones in your book in Joplin Missouri. It was there until the early 90's and then it disappeared. You could go to the top of it and shake the whole thing back and forth!! Ohhh man! Great subject matter for a book! Congrats on the win!

I grew up playing on a rocket ship playground in the early 70's. This brings back so many memories!
