Everyday scenes underwater
by Megan Meagher
Andreas Franke's underwater photos were sadly not completely created underwater, but they are on display underwater. The Austrian photographer documented his journey to the Hoyt S. Vandenberg, a ship 100 feet below sea level and 7 miles south of Key West. He then digitally created the surreal images inspired by everyday scenes from the past. The 12 photos, "Life Below the Surface," are now on display, in heavy-duty waterproof frames, attached to the sides of the ship with magnets.
"Mystified scenes of the past that play in a fictional space. Dreamworlds, where you can get lost or you can identify with.
This makes new and unexpected atmosphere." - Andreas Franke
