For years, scientists, novelists and filmmakers have tried to imagine just what kind of living things lurk beyond our planet, and now, Francesco Sambo has captured them.

Francesco Sambo, an artist from Venice, gives the audience his interpretation of what alien children would look like if they do indeed exist. In his Alien Collection, photos of children are manipulated to encapsulate the innocence of a child and the eeriness of a mysterious, unknown life form. The seamless results are serene and chilling, invoking a vast amount of wonder in the viewer.

This alien children photography provides another glimpse into how humans imagine just what extraterrestrial means and what it would truly look like. Whether these photos are accurate has yet to be seen.
