This is what 18,000 naked people look like. This is old news to some, but I missed it at the time. How did they manage to organise so many people so well? Photographer Spencer Tunick created the images in Mexico City. His next project is sometime this month in Amsterdam. Anyone going or gone to it?

I’ll leave out the old preaching of purdish people and their reluctance to view the human form.
