The Sinking World of Andreas Franke
Vienna based Andreas Franke is a passionate diver as well as an award winning commercial photographer. When not shooting for clients, Franke has been creating his one of-a-kind under water art projects for over 5 years, and hopes to continue this work indefinitely.
The procedure of creating the artwork of Originals and Uniques:
The work actually begins as a composite photograph - a collage of underwater photographs of the submerged ships combined with studio photographs representing people in scenes from everyday life, as well as days gone by. The photographs were covered with plexiglass and then carefully placed into the sea. While underwater, the influence of the sea attaches to each image. During the months of exhibition a slow procedure leads to an extraordinary transformation and matures the artwork to its final result. Salty water enters the artwork at the edges and creates artistic, colorful frames and the settlement of marine life on the acrylic surface adds an extensive patina and evolves the exhibits to entirely inimitable and absolutely unique art works.
Original and Reproductions can be seen & purchased here only at
7 Artisits & Friends Gallery
located at 213 Simonton Street
With my photographs of The Sinking World, I want to pull the spectators into unreal and strange worlds. Ordinary scenes of the past play within a fictional space and become dreamworlds you can get lost in or you can identify with.
In the summer of 1991, a college internship brought Indiana native Jennifer Badry to Key West, Florida.
