"In a society that celebrates the inessential, architecture can put up a resistance, counteract the waste of forms and meanings, and speak its own language. I believe that the language of architecture is not a question of a specific style. Every building is built for a specific use in a specific place and for a specific society"

"Life Below the Surface" is an exhibition by Andreas Franke. The Austrian photographer is listed several times in "200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide" and his work is honoured with the most important awards in business.











Andreas about the images:

"Mystified scenes of the past that play in a fictional space. Dreamworlds, where you can get lost or you can identify with. This makes a new and unexpected atmosphere."

Andreas transformed old sunken ship - Vandenberg /military ship located 100 feet below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean in Key West, Florida/ into an underwater art gallery.
Twelve photo manipulations were encased in plexiglass and mounted on the starboard side using magnets. Vandenberg military ship is located 100 feet below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean in Key West, Florida.
