Underwater Museum Opens in Cannes

A new underwater museum opened in Cannes, France, this month. It is Jason de Caires Taylor’s first installation in the Mediterranean Sea and features a series of six monumental three-dimensional portraits, each over 2 metrers in height and 10 tons in weight.

Placed at 2-3 meters deep, these artworks rest on areas of white sand, in-between oscillating posidonia seagrass meadows in the protected southern part of the island. The shallow depth and close proximity to shore make the site easily accessible, and the crystal-clear waters provide ideal conditions for snorkeling.
