What is that top one, Rape of the Sabines?

Photography of nudes is one thing, but is it just me or is a mountain of naked women on their backs with their legs in the air speaking to something a little different. Last shot with them curled up ass-to-the-camera is little better

And maybe it's just me, but when I see a corridor of bums, like the last photo, I can't help wondering: if one of them farted, would it set off a chain reaction? (Just read "The Day My Bum Went Psycho" so that probably doesn't help.)

Hmm, I seem to remember this Tunick guy doing something around where I live... There was an article in the paper about it, and a big uproar with people who were for/against it. Me, I admire the people who have the guts to pose for him. I never could, I'm way too self-conscious.

It's still just a bunch of naked people lying there, nobody ever thought a frat house on Sunday morning was art...

I'm guessing somewhere off on the side there is a mountain of clothes? Someone should be taking advantage of that, and calling it art.

He always picks gray overcast days. I suppose it's for better pictures without shadows and hot spots, but it always looks like an uncomfortable day to be naked.

I rather like like gallery shot. In fact, I think it is possibly the best Tunick shot yet.

If it's art, is it really NSFW?

Better safe than fired...

In general, I think Tunick has found an amusing little niche but pictures of numerous chilly Europeans tends toward an unattractive purplish hue that just reminds me that we need clothes in these climates.

Incommunicadocat's post reminded me of when I went to the Moulin Rouge in Paris. Not my usual choice of entertainment and it's not important how I ended up there, but I (a woman, for those who don't know) found looking at the rows of topless dancers a liberating experience (no pun intended). Their breasts were all shapes and sizes, and the sight of this variety brought home to me in a very comforting way that any shape is a good shape for a breast. It's difficult to explain, and I can see all you guys (yes, YOU, LJ) saying "Doh! Of COURSE!" to me, but the media in general presents the idea that there is a "standard" shape, an idea which the ladies at the Moulin Rouge dispelled for me forever. I wish I could explain better ...

A boob is a boob. Some are exquisite, some are... well, not. But there is no 'Standard', not by a long shot.

My 60 year old friend posed for Tunick in Newcastle. It was a wonderful experience for her, as she is originally from there, and found it liberating at 60 to be walking around stark naked with thousands of other people.

They must have got a LOT of beads!
