East Village-based photographer Steven Hirsch has unveiled a provocative new project. (You might recall his site crustypunks.) With Little Sticky Legs, Hirsch has taken his acclaimed portrait format to document another little-known American subculture — alien abductees.
Hirsch recently traveled to Arizona for The International UFO Conference, where he found his subjects, such as Cynthia (pictured).
Each portrait includes a story of abduction. Per Cynthia: "As far as the abductions. I've had numerous of them where they've shown me around various ships. They've also explained to me about the Hybrids and about the Starseeds that are here on planet Earth, why they're here and how they're here to help humanity."
