"Alien abduction -- the stuff of science fiction novels, movies, television and, many claim, real life.

Whether or not you believe the stories of people who say they've been spirited out of their cars on lonely country roads or lifted out of their beds while sleeping or zapped into a spaceship in front of several eyewitnesses, the tales are told by enough people to at least take a close look at this phenomenon.
"I believe there's a lot of idiosyncrasies going on in people, generally. I don't like to try to figure out why people are saying what they say. I take them for face value. I'm a listener and they are storytellers and I'm fascinated by the story," said photographer Steven Hirsch (http://www.stevenhirsch.com/).
Hirsch, a New York City-based artist, specializes in photographing and interviewing people who are sometimes categorized as "fringe" members of culture. His work has been featured in Newsweek, Time, and The New York Times, among others. Hirsch's photographs have also been included in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art and the Library of Congress."
