Andreas Franke is one of worlds most respected advertising photographers. Additionally to his commercial work, Andreas worked on several personal projects. “Life Below The Surface” is his freshest and most sensational.
“In my photography I try to construct illusionistic worlds. I like to see things from a different angle and I try to create new kind of views. Thereby taking images of a sunk ship and bringing life back to the ship by filling these images with stories was always very interesting for me. By diving the Vandenberg I finally found the perfect stage and the last obstacle to realise my idea was removed.
My work is always based on a strict concept, which is photographically and technically perfectly implemented. Every little detail is part of a precisely arranged production. There is no space left for fortuity.”
