Over the weekend I discovered some really amazing photographs by NY installation artist and photographer Spencer Tunick. If you haven’t seen any of his work before, I strongly suggest following the link at the bottom of this post to his website. Tunick specializes in massive nude installations which he photographs. The home page of his website features an overhead shot of a square in Mexico City that’s filled to the brim with 18,000 nude people lying in the fetal position.
Upon first viewing, I was convinced that the photo had been doctored or layered in someway, but after looking into it, it turns out that he actually manages to get thousands of people to pose for all of his photos. Tunick lives and works (mostly) in New York, but his work is on display in museums all over the world. If you’re interested, have a look at his website and select the “artwork” tab to see some of his incredible work.
