What lies behind UFO sightings and alien abductions? Are they simply profitable stories, individual or collective delusions, religious myths, or actual physical phenomena? With their investigative journey through Nevada, New Mexico, and Arizona, Sara Brincher Galbiati, Peter Helles Eriksen, and Tobias Selnæs Markussen document an alternative belief system, one where humans are not at the centre of the universe. Using interviews, photographs, and other material, the book examines mankind’s need for faith, striving to understand the modern myth of extraterrestrial visitors, and especially the role our eternal search for substance in the face of meaninglessness plays in this.

The Copenhagen-based collective behind “Phenomena” consists of Sara Galbiati, Peter Helles Eriksen, and Tobias Selnæs Markussen. All of them are trained photojournalists from the Danish School of Media and Journalism. Individually, they work on projects and assignments for a wide range of major media. For the “Phenomena” project, the group acted as a collective using a conceptual, subjective and playful approach to documentary. Fundamental to their work is the conviction that the romanticised ego of the photographer needs to be challenged and dissolved.
