Personal photography projects combine both reflection and exploration. Often photographers will find an area or subject they are connected to and use this medium to understand and represent it. For Mexico City-based Annick Donkers, her photobook Un-Identified both retells a formative experience witnessing a UFO while connecting with others who shared similar alien encounters. Through portraiture, astral imagery, and heavy research into the mysterious world of theories, she provides a safe space for these personal stories to be received, as they help expand upon the many questions of humanity’s place in the universe.
Curiosity rover snaps a “doorway” on Mars, sparks conspiracy theories

It turns out that it was.
The three clips are referred to as Flir, Go Fast and Gimbal, which are shown in the video above. But I wouldn’t necessarily go pointing the fingers at little green (or grey) men just yet. There may be perfectly reasonable optical explanations for strange speed and movements shown in the clips.
