Austrian photographer and diver Andreas Franke is bringing his photographs of sunken shipwrecks to South Florida. Known as the "Sinking World" exhibit, Franke's images bring to life wrecks like the USCGC Mohawk, a WWII ship; and the USNS Vandenberg, along with captivating shots of the second-largest artificial reef in the world. Working with the artificial reef company Reefmakers, his images have resulted in an international partnership between the world of art and scuba diving. The small seaside town of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is the perfect place to enjoy Franke's exhibit, as it is "The Beach Diving Capital of Florida."
