Hangar 51

"A UFO crashed northwest of Roswell, New Mexico, in the summer of 1947." - Wikipedia on Area 51.

But what was never mentioned was the existence of a "Hangar 51". In 1947 the government ran a complex web of diversions that led the press and UFOlogists to speculate on Hangar 18 (another abandoned warehouse near Roswell that reportedly stored alien aircraft debris), several hundred miles from where the actual extraterrestrial material was actually stored. Only the highest government and military officials knew of Hangar 51, if indeed it existed.

Haha ok there really is this abandoned military hangar, but it's nowhere near Roswell. My friends Kristi and Stephanie had planned a road trip to Salton Sea for a photo shoot, but it rained on us on our way that morning (for the second time!). We took a little detour and found ourselves taking shelter in this old dilapidated warehouse. The place was incredibly filthy, with decaying wood, broken glass, torn out fixtures, and bird (owl?) droppings everywhere I stepped. It was perfect for a photo shoot!






















A HUGE shoutout to our hair/makeup stylists: Denise and JJ, Paul from Blue Sky Videos, and our fabulous models Cazz, Denise, Tyler, Kylah, and Amy!
