Updated December 16, We'd all been sitting together, fully clothed, for more than an hour in a warm, cavernous room in Prahran on a Sunday afternoon. Many chatted and laughed.
Demonstrators, photographed by Spencer Tunick, bare nipples outside Facebook in censorship protest. About people stripped naked in front of Facebook's New York headquarters on Sunday, as part of a protest against what they view as censorship regarding Facebook and Instagram's policies around artistic nudity. As dawn rose over the city, the demonstrators lay naked on the road, each with large images of male nipples covering their genitalia.
They came in their thousands, some walking, some leaning on crutches, others in wheelchairs — but all naked. Before dawn broke on Saturday, 3, people gathered in Hull city centre, shed their shoes and clothes and painted themselves blue in the name of art. Volunteers, who were unpaid, arrived at a meeting point in the city centre at 3am, where they stripped off and helped to paint each other.
What fabulous architecture there — and what a thriving arts centre that recently celebrated its 10th anniversary — even though it looks as if it was built only yesterday. The weather was wild and woolly — rain, gusty wind, bright sunshine. In a bold move the Lowry decided to commission Tunick to do a shoot on the quays there to celebrate their first decade.
The world's foremost photographer of large scale nude works, he's organizing a shoot that's likely to get lots of attention from the media, and the hordes of celebrants, protestors and provocateurs expected to gather in Cleveland in mid July to name the Republican presidential candidate. For a piece called "Everything She Says Means Everything," Tunick plans to assemble women holding Mylar mirrors that will, according to his websitereflect "the knowledge and wisdom of progressive women and the concept of Mother Nature into and onto the convention center, cityscape and horizon of Cleveland. Though a native of New York, Tunick has a network of support in the Ohio area.
These are external links and will open in a new window. Photographs featuring thousands of people posing naked and painted blue at locations across Hull have been unveiled. Artist Spencer Tunick photographed 3, people at sites around the city on 9 July for the Sea of Hull project.
It was the culmination of having waited and literally planned for weeks for this moment, to find myself in Barcelona one very hot Saturday afternoon in June So, what was I doing there? Well, I've been a admirer of Spencer Tunick and his work for about seven years. The images that he comes up with are, to me, astounding - and I promised myself that if he ever came to a place near me, I'd be there.

Although the temperature was sitting at a chilly degrees Celsius 50 degrees Fahrenheita total of participants aged 18 to 77 showed up for Tunick's mass installation. And it almost didn't happen, thanks to Woolworths originally denying the artist permission for use of the site. It's the second Tunick has directed over the last week.
