Divers examine photographs by Austrian photographer Andreas Franke along the deck of Gen. Hoyt S. Vandenberg artificial reef, 90 feet deep in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary off Key West, Florida, in this photograph taken on August 4, 2011.

Franke, who is known for his complex postproduction and digital renderings, created and installed a dozen digitally composited images using photos he shot of the Vandenberg a year earlier. Two of the 12 Plexiglas-enclosed 20 sq.ft. images include a girl catching butterflies on the sunken-ships deck as well a bartender pouring drinks for dancing voyagers; the sort of ethereal imagery associated with much of Franke’s work.
