Spencer Tunick photos went online today

Spencer Tunick’s Irish photos might be online but you wouldn’t know it as the site is down, probably from the rush of people trying to see their neighbours or friends in the nip. Oops. Should have done a deal with Pix.ie!

I did manage to grab one image off there this afternoon and Vic has a few shots which I’ve added to a small gallery. Photos from Cork (he shot in Blarney and in the City) will eventually be seen here. Give it a few days until the site quietens down again.

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.

Hula hoop dancer

A dancer entertained the crowds at the Midleton Food and Drink Festival last September. She was quite popular as you can imagine!

Here’s a fascinating page on hula hoops courtesy of Wikipedia.
