Thousands strip naked in Hull for Spencer Tunick photographs

Post by feelthelove on Sat Jul 09, 2016 4:34 pm



In the early hours of Saturday morning, 3,200 people from around the world gathered in Hull city centre, stripped naked and painted themselves blue in the name of art.

The spectacle to celebrate the city’s relationship with the sea was arranged by the American photographer Spencer Tunick, famous for his installations featuring crowds of nude people, and was commissioned by the city’s Ferens Art Gallery for Hull’s UK city of culture celebrations next year. New-York based Tunick had been inspired by Hull’s maritime history and had body paints made in four shades of blue. Roads in the city centre were closed between midnight and 10am as the participants posed in historic locations.

Nope....topless in Spain is the most I have ever had the nerve to be.

It is a lovely pic though.

I just saw the other pics....not as artistic as the finished result. Razz

Hi Ftl


Long time no see, hope you are well.

I certainly would, as i am not ashamed of my body or how in this day and age, that in fact we are not naked, and that our bodies are covered by a layer of skin.

I used to hate FTL's smileys, don't know why, but I really like them now. I've obviously stopped being a miserable cow.
She cheers the place up cheers

I MIGHT HAVE done so, 20 or 30 years ago,  but not these days...

It would be easier to go naked among a few thousand like that, than posing solo for art classes, for comparison --  there would be that certain 'anonymity' in being part of such a large crowd..        cyclops

I don't know you well enough for you to be making jokes like that with me.
