Area 51

Nevada Desert

GQ Magazine assigned us to photograph the atmosphere and culture around Area 51, a highly secretive and much talked-about US airforce institution located in the desert of Nevada.

 

During the time of this story in late 2019 there was a lot of hype generated over the social-media fuelled plan to ‘Storm Area 51’. 

We met with local business owners and residents living in the vicinity and asked them about their everyday lives and extraterrestrial experiences.

 

Their feedback inspired us to make photographs that captured the surreal mood and uncanny aura of the region.
