"An Underwater Art Gallery Only Accessible with an O2 Tank and a Wetsuit"
Just off the coast of Florida, 130 feet beneath the ocean’s surface, there is an art gallery – a real, full-fledged art gallery. Adorning the walls of the “gallery” (an artificial reef created by the 10,000 ton sunken ship of the USS General Hoyt S. Vandenberg) are photographs taken by Austrian photographer and diver Andreas Franke. If you don’t think the location of the gallery is crazy enough, check out the photographs themselves. Franke superimposed photographs of everyday life (laundry, ballet class, the movie theater) upon other photographs of the ship/reef’s actual interior so that it seems like entire lives are being lived 130 feet beneath the sea.
