Andreas Franke’s Surreal Photographs of a Sunken Freighter Populated with Courtesans, Royalty

Perhaps for no particular reason other than to create something truly unique, the “Stavronikita Project” by Austrian photographer Andreas Franke imagines elegant, decadent courtesans of centuries past lounging aboard the sunken freighter Stavronikita. The surreal series skillfully combines photographs staged and shot in studio with underwater photographs taken off the coast of Barbados. The resulting images are all at once eerie and enchanting.
