MYSTERY WIRE — They were a long way from home when “Storm Area 51” hit.
Photographers Ryan Koopmans and Alice Wexell were in Los Angeles for photo meetings, and they had California on their minds. That is, until Matty Roberts distracted them with the social media fervor surrounding Storm Area 51.
They decided to document the Nevada site at the center of it all. So in the middle of August, Koopmans and Wexell headed for the heat of Nevada’s desert.
The landscape was like nothing they had seen. Koopmans works out of Amsterdam, and Wexell is from Stockholm.
Here are some of the images they captured for GQ Australia. They have also been published online by Wired. They are used here by permission.
