Let's Hope They're Friendly: Photos by Derek Henderson





Let's Hope They're Friendly: Photos by Derek Henderson

Conceptual photos inspired by memories of a UFO sighting in New Zealand when he was fifteen years old.
Memory is elastic. It bulges, tears and repairs itself in unexpected ways. It acts as an undertow, destabilising your relationship with reality. In 1978, New Zealand reported its most significant UFO sighting to date in the small town of Kaikoura. Derek Henderson was fifteen years old at the time, and was there, sleeping on the side of the road. Through the ensuing years, Henderson has returned to his memories of that night, examining and reflecting, attempting to draw a conclusion to a confusing event. It is this uncertainty that informs his new body of work, “Let’s Hope They’re Friendly”. Employing a more indexical approach than what was apparent in previous series, Henderson portrays possibilities and improbabilities alike in the construction of these images, seeking an outcome for an event he is unlikely ever to gain an answer for.

Strange works juxtaposing animals and insects with machinery that leaves the viewer both curious and confused, which is what he intended.
Throughout his body of work, Bowen takes familiar iconography and handily corkscrews it with his own unique brand of humor and distinct painting style.

Self-portraits in which Sebastien partially sketches himself into his own photos to make an interesting composite effect.
All my pictures are taken inside my apartment, using only natural light. The drawings are done with a simple pencil on a sheet of paper. Then the drawing is scanned, cleaned and added to the picture with Photoshop tools.
