Know how to scuba dive? Like art? If you answered yes to both of those questions, there’s something you’ve got to check out in Key West.
Actually, underwater off Key West would be more accurate.
Austrian modern artist and photographer Andreas Franke has transformed the USNS General Hoyt S. Vandenberg, the second-largest artificial reef in the world, into a subaquatic art gallery.
A dozen images from Franke’s “Stavronikita” series are encased in plexiglass and hung on the sides of the wreckage of the old World War II era vessel. The Baroque photo illustrations, which have never been displayed in the U.S. before, are surreal and ostentatious in nature.
The works will be left underwater until late July when divers will bring them to the surface.
Jump over to Franke’s website The Sinking World to see more images from the incredible series.
