Emilano Granado: Thank God That’s Over

Cruise culture captured in cracking series by photographer Emilano Granado

I don’t know about you but I’ve never really got cruises – the idea of spending a couple of weeks cooped up with some people you’ve never met just doesn’t appeal no matter how many amenities/buffets there are. It appears that Argentine-born, Brooklyn-based photographer Emiliano Granado shares my bewilderment, but unlike me he’s done something about it and spent five days aboard the Explorer of the Seas shooting the ship and its curious inhabitants.

The resulting series Thank God That’s Over is a fascinating snasphot of this phenomenon and combines some gentle fun-poking with what appears to be genuine affection. Emilano has just self-published it as a photo-essay and in his latest newsletter he sells it thus: "TGTO has everything – The Captain, The Janitor and endless bad fashion decisions.

Also I love the fact that Emilano’s website portfolio is divided into Hot Sh*t, Classic Sh*t and Other Sh*t. Check him out.
