Portraits of people who claim to be abducted by aliens are placed next to their hand-drawn images which are supposed to depict the details of the abduction. It’s easy to dismiss people who claim to have been abducted by aliens as nutters, and let’s face it, they invariably are. There’s something about the geographical consistency, Twilight Zone cliches and mad, staring eyes that makes it hard to take them seriously. But New York photographer Steven Hirsch has put away his cynicism, and has given a voice to these victims of intergalactic sequester. Along with this, he’s also given them some crayons and a slightly demeaning photographic portrait of themselves to help people believe their ridiculous stories. Take a look. Enjoy.
