Extraordinary images of the cruise ship by Jonathan Danko Kielkowski from his book Concordia, published by White Press. The German photographer swam out to where the ship – which ran aground off Tuscany in 2012 with the loss of 32 lives – is moored. Francesco Schettino, the ship’s captain, was jailed for 16 years over the accident.

Kielkowski said: “Against all odds, I find the shipwreck freely accessible – neither fences nor security personnel. Rather, the doors are open, lights are turned on, no man can be seen”.

The images show the derelict state of the luxury cruise ship, four years to the month after it sank.
