Artist Matt Hoyle spent the summer of 2006 interviewing and photographing ordinary Americans who claim to have had a brush with the "unknown." There's Dennis, who believes his home is haunted by the spirit of a young boy; Katie, who's certain she once saw a werewolf; Ed, who believes he was abducted by aliens; and more than 50 other people with eerie tales to tell.
Hoyle's photos, along with his subjects' stories, have now been collected in a new book. But more than two dozen examples can be seen online at Matt Hoyle's Encounters. Be prepared to get spooked.
