The resting ships at the bottom of the sea offer a unique background for the photographs of Andreas Franke. The photographer says: “With my photographs of sunken shipwrecks, I want to pull the spectators into unreal and strange worlds. Mystified scenes of the past play within a fictional space. Dreamworlds you can get lost in or that you can identify with. This creates a new and unexpected atmosphere. This work shows [a lot] of myself, since I am always on the lookout for stunning themes to create new images never seen before.” Photo: Andreas Franke.

    The boy with the net is enchanting, I take it that it is a boy? Like an underwater spirit it manages to make a morbid subject matter joyful. I could imagine being comforted by this if I had lost a child at sea.
