Some call it art

At the Sydney Opera House

I read about this on Saturday, and heard it on the BBC last night, so I did some research about this man, Spencer Tunick.

Hundreds of volunteers have stripped naked for a public photo shoot marking the 10th anniversary of the Lowry art gallery in Salford, Manchester. That was his latest venture.

His aim was to capture the movement of everyday people and reflect the work of the artist LS Lowry. The photos will be part of an exhibition at The Lowry Gallery.

Tunick has photographed thousands of nude volunteers across the world, most recently at the Sydney Opera House last month.

“I think I have done enough works in England where there’s sort of acceptance of my work as an art form and people really want to pose,” he said. People were actually signing up to do this!

A participant from Birmingham said taking part was a “great experience”.

“It’s wonderful how many different shapes and sizes of bodies there are,” she said.

“You get so used to seeing a certain shape of body in magazines, and not one single person looked like that.

“Even the first time it felt normal because everyone was doing it and nobody was looking. It was just amazing.”

Tunick is looking for volunteers to take part in his next project at the Big Chill Festival in Herefordshire, UK. Any volunteers? πŸ˜›
