Who among us doesn’t feel a sense of romantic allure in shipwrecks? After all, these sunken, silent testaments to life interrupted offer a thrill to divers when they teem once more with new life, thanks to the inexorable ecology of marine creatures.
This winter at the Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center, visitors will be treated to a top-side viewing of this spectacle occurring at two of Florida’s shipwrecks. Covered in a patina formed by living sea creatures, photographs from the Mohawk and Vandenberg projects are collages comprised of people enacting moments from bygone eras against background images of these ships. The result is a set of stunningly real images that seem to bring the past to life.
