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.

Naked in Ireland

I’ve mentioned Spencer Tunick a few times already on this blog and it seems he’s coming to Ireland soon and bringing his unusual brand of nude photography with him.

Internationally acclaimed contemporary artist Spencer Tunick will be offering the public the chance of a lifetime to become part of his first back to back city art project in both Cork and Dublin this June. Multiple groups of nude participants will be photographed outdoors by Tunick as part of his series of installations that have previously taken place in cities around the world including New York, Amsterdam and Mexico City.

Cork: 17th June 2008
Dublin Docklands: 21st June 2008

And, considering the really bad weather lately, let’s hope the sun shines when he’s taking his photos. From the FAQ:

What will happen if it’s raining or very cold weather?
The installation will happen rain or shine. The installation will happen if the weather is cold, but the artist will work as quick as possible to make his art.

No, I won’t be volunteering. Good luck if you’re going!
