A Handshake with a Martian

Provoked by my inner curiosity into the UFO scene in the United Kingdom, A Handshake with a Martian is a personal investigation into the British UFO phenomena. I embark on a journey that takes me across the UK to try and understand what has occurred. Supported by official declassified documents, this project is a photographic response to my journey. I meet the people who believe in and research ufos, as well as visit the locations where these famous sightings happened.


The images displayed are a small selection of images from the project. Composing of over 300 images, the project is still ongoing as of 2019.

I made contact with a man named Derek and arranged to meet him. Derek kindly offered to be my guide and showed me around the site where the UFO incident occurred. Derek and his brother, Andrew, believe in spirits and practice mediumship. Mediumship allows people to see ghosts, aliens and other paranormal entities. Derek told me about the time he had arranged to shake hands with a Martian - Thus giving birth to my title “A Handshake with a Martian”. 2017.

Derek had arranged for me to meet a lady called Brenda and a group of mediums who walk around the forest at night. They believe that spirits, ghosts, aliens and other paranormal entities live and are active at night in the forest. I set out to investigate whether there was any truth to this and if there was any relationship to the event that occurred in 1980. 2017.
