World renowned artist, Spencer Tunick, as reported by CNN has done it again: by assembling more than 7,000 nude bodies this morning on an avenue in Barcelona, Spain, he exceeded his largest previous gathering of about 4,500 in Melbourne, Australia, in 2001 (photo to the right). It is marvelous to see such compassion and participation for his work around the globe, himself being a New York native, and in such contrast to the perception of the nude in the US where he has been arrested five times for working with nudes in public. This itself is a reflection of the contrast between his nude bodies and that of the urban backgrounds of his photographic compositions.
This is exciting stuff! What is wrong with US?
