When photographer Emiliano Granado finally set foot on dry land after five days aboard the MS Explorer of the Seas the first thing he said was “Thank God that’s over”. With a camera full of photographs and a thankfulness for getting home those words would go on to become the title of a series that showed life aboard a cruise-ship in all its, eh, splendid glory.
The Argentinean-born, New York-based photographer creates fantastic images that examine pop-culture, exhibition and spectacle. His cruise-ship photos are particularly wonderful – highlighting the baffling world of cruise-ship culture and all the bewildering and beautiful parts of it. It’s a fantastic series and one which shows a slice of life I have absolutely no desire to witness firsthand!
