18,000 people nude in public

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?

Fair dues to him getting those shots. I find it’s hard enough to shoot ordinary group shots, without having to communicate with such a large crowd! Mad stuff altogether! His Naked States DVD is out too. I saw this on tv and it’s worth watching to see Spencer in action.

    I always thought Mexico was a racially diverse country. They all look very white to me – all 18,000 of them.

    The question is brought up if this is art or pornagraphy? The content suggest that it is anything but pornographic in nature. Some of his photos have a dark side, but most appear to be a celabration of life. Where his beggings are I don’t know, but his present photographic persuits are grounded firmly in the realm of art. I’ll leave out the old preaching of purdish people and their reluctance to view the human form.
