Australian photographer Andreas Franke has digitally manipulated the submarine images he captured around the sunken boat Vandenberg, on Artificial Reef Off Key West, to create a parallel universe under water and even exhibit in this medium. The series Life below the surface is installed at the location of the wrecked ship. The pictures are encased between sheets of plexiglass and have a steel frame sealed with silicone to avoid the water from entering. The video below documents the installation of such a particular exhibition.
“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.”
