Andreas Franke has crafted these lovely pictures for his Underwater Gallery series.

As part of the exhibit, Andreas takes the above photographs and strategically places them on old shipwrecks to appear as windows. It creates the illusion that life still exists within the doomed craft. In order to view them in person, one needs the proper equipment and training to dive to the depths where the exhibit is situated.

It’s not the first time Andreas has put together such an exhibit. This current exhibit is the much anticipated sequel which is conveyed on a different wreck.

The enchanting photos tell stories of what life for the deceased of the shipwreck would be like if they went on living as ghosts. The contrast of life with decaying shipwrecks is brilliant.

If this incredible underwater gallery isn’t enough to encourage one to become a diver, I don’t know what will.
