Massive Nude Photo Shoot Planned For GOP Convention

Well, this will be interesting. From the Huffington Post:

Calling all feminist activists, nudists, Cleveland-based Democrats, and people overdue for a laundry day. Photographer Spencer Tunick is looking for 100 bold women to pose nude for a Cleveland-based photo shoot on July 17, 2016. Also — you’ll be baring all at the Republican National Convention.

If you’re not familiar with Tunick’s work, allow me to briefly summarize: naked people, lots of them. Since the 1990s, Tunick has organized over 70 massive photo shoots in locations spanning the globe, in which hundreds or thousands of people strip down to revel in the glory of unmediated human flesh. In the artist’s words: “individuals en masse, without their clothing, grouped together, metamorphose into a new shape.“

In an interview with the Cleveland Scene, Tunick explained the project’s relationship to the Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s reprehensible comments about and treatment of women. “The work is for my daughters, for their future, for them not to grow up in a society with hate, for them to grow up in a world with less violence toward women and more opportunities for them.”
