Huge landscape installations lined with nude people

Photographer Spencer Tunick, who explores art in the public sphere, has been staging massive backdrops that star up to tens of thousands of nude volunteers for decades. He has been arrested five times while trying to work outdoors in New York City and now takes his work abroad.

Nudes became his medium, he told CoolHunting, when he started thinking about why he liked nude works by artists who didn’t usually deal with nudes: ‘I thought, why not do what I really love? Why vary from something when you can just totally obsess in it? I am very much interested in the body and how it relates to public space, the interaction between the participatory element of my work and the public that views it’.
