A new art exhibition with a difference has opened in Florida.


Australian artist and diver Andreas Franke has opened an underwater art gallery on the Vandenberg military ship, off Florida's Key west coast.

The exhibition showcases some stunning photo shopped images from the artist showing deeply beautiful yet surreal images of what life was like aboard the ship in its heyday before it sank.


 The images are stuck to the starboard side of the 522 foot boat with magnets.


 To see this spectacle, it is necessary to dive over 90 feet below the surface to reach the boat.


 If you're not a diver but are still interested, don't worry. The prints are available to buy online . These eerie atmospheric photos are certainly worth a look.


 The Vandenberg was a controlled sinking, so no one actually died on the vessel. No ghosts here!
