UFO Presences explores the places where UFO sightings have taken place across America: in California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and of course the infamous Area 51, along South Central Nevada's State Route 375 – the so-called Extraterrestrial Highway, where so many travelers have reported UFO observations and other bizarre alien activities. Spanish photographer Javier Arcenillas (born 1973) has diligently photographed these locations, and sequenced them in this book as a visual road trip, mixing his photographs with news clippings and other relevant ephemera.
UFO Presences is the winner of RM's 6th Photobook Award with a jury composed of David Campany, Lesley Martin, Julien Frydman, Susan Meiselas, Martin Parr and Alec Soth, among others.
