Underwater Shipwreck Art Gallery - Photos Released!

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about a spectacular underwater gallery that was created on the Vandenberg shipwreck off Key West, Florida. The exhibition, titled Vandenberg: Life Below the Surface, recently released the 12 digitally layered images that were used, all of which were taken by avid diver and professional photographer Andreas Franke.

At a depth of 93 feet, divers attached strong magnets from Franke's photographs to the boat's starboard side. To keep water out, the images are encased in 3 millimeter plexiglass and mounted in stainless steel frames sealed with silicone. No harmful materials were used in the installation of the exhibit.

Nice work. Really nice. Makes you go... Hmmm! And think that we actually don't know the 80% of our planet. There's an entire new world under the sea, indeed.

These are amazing! It probably isn't doing it justice viewing this from above water.

These are so cool!! Although I do think I'd be scared if I swam by a couple of these.
