Photographer Allison Davies hasn't yet been able to leave Earth for other biospheres. But the photographer has made it to some of Earth's most otherworldly locations, in between her assignments as an undercover investigator for a private detective firm.

Davies' photos of unearthly vistas appear in a new book called Outerland, from Charles Lane Press, and you could easily believe that many of these stark views are from far beyond Earth. The locations include Antarctica, Iceland, Death Valley, Chile, Bolivia, New Mexico and Eastern Oregon. According to the blurb from Charles Lane's website:

Davies portrays herself as a solitary interplanetary wanderer lost in the spectacular vistas of alien worlds. Presented without text or explanation of any kind, and with only a handful of mysterious symbols to help orient ourselves in Davies' imagined cosmos, Outerland offers a compelling new perspective on self-portraiture within the narrative of modern landscape photography.
