The iconic Sydney Opera House isn’t just for theatrical performances. Fifty-two hundred people left their clothes behind to pose in the raw on its steps for another icon, a photographer known for taking pictures of naked masses of people.
Spencer Tunick, known for nude group photos of hundreds of people in public places used Sydney Australia’s Opera House to place naked participants in different poses for more than an hour outside the opera house.
The photo shoot was designed to show love among people of all persuasions, which at times proved to be a challenge.
The shy Tunic, who can be seen mostly wearing black, objects to being called a photographer, refers to himself as an artist and calls his work installations, said of the demanding shoot:
"It was difficult to get the straight participants to embrace the gay participants and vice versa," Tunick said. "So I was very happy that that last set up finally got done and everyone came together (in a) united, friendly kiss, a loving kiss in front of this great structure."
One participant, 19-year-old student Art Rush, who had no problem with anything, said he was thrilled to participate.
