Photobook; Un-Identified by Annick Donkers

Un-Identidied is a series about the belief in alien species and how people construct their own world and perceptions. The series is based on a personal experience I had at the age of 10 that triggered my passion for the subject and curiosity to understand the psychology behind it.

UN-IDENTIFIED is a series about the belief in alien species and how people construct their own world and perceptions. The series is based on a personal experience I had at the age of 10 that triggered my passion for the subject and curiosity to understand the psychology behind it.

The idea for the series came after visiting the International UFO Congress in Phoenix. I was impressed by the multitude of people attracted by this event and the secrecy surrounding the subject. I felt as if I was entering a new universe, a subculture in which spaceships, contacts with creatures from other dimensions, space travel and abductions are part of the reality of believers, even if they are viewed as something strange and skeptical by outsiders.

Carl Jung said that modern man projects his inner state into the sky. In a cybernetic culture, full of uncertainties, catastrophes and fears of the unknown, people are looking for a way to redefine themselves and feel safe in a group of like-minded people. By giving the unexplained a divine and supernatural character, they feel both hopeful and chosen to be part of a sacred mission to spread the truth.
