Photobook by Silas Bahr
In Schmidrüti, a small village outside Zürich, lives the only person who is in contact with aliens. That is at least what “Billy” Eduard Albert Meier claims. As proof he serves an extensive collection of photographs and videos, which show spaceships and other traces of the contacts in unusually high quality. Despite extensive criticism concern the authenticity of Meier’s photographs and other materials, his followers around the world insist on their authenticity. Through photography, Meier has constructed a fictive reality that, as a coherent knowledge system, provides his believers answers and solutions to their urgent real questions and problems.
