Conceptual Photographs of Normal People as Space Travelers

In Italian photographer Graziano Panfili’s haunting series Alienation, which we spotted over at Faith Is Torment, average citizens of Earth stand expectant in their space suits, waiting in their yards, basements and bedrooms for an otherworldly experience. Or perhaps they’ve just arrived back from one. In these photos, the subjects seem like aliens, explorers, in their own homes, the nondescript space suits and lighting design casting a surreal glow over the scene. Click through to see some of our favorites from the series, and then be sure to head on over to Panfili’s website to check out the rest, and to see even more of his work.
