5,200 Australians bare all for photo shoot
AP ^ | March 1, 2010

Posted on 03/01/2010 9:11:38 AM PST by ConservativeStatement

SYDNEY—About 5,200 naked people embraced each other on the steps of Sydney's iconic Opera House on Monday for a photo shoot by Spencer Tunick.

Tunick, who is known for his nude group photos in public spaces, posed participants for more than an hour in a variety of positions.

"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."

If you’re gonna make it big as an artiste, you gotta have a gimmick, wrapping landmarks in cellophane, sliced cows in formaldehyde, photographing weimaraners in fancy dress, etc.

Without seeing the pictures, I bet those are not the same 5200 nude Australians I would have picked for a photo shoot.

Most definitely...just because they bare all, doesn't mean we have to bear the sight of it!

It was difficult to get the straight normal participants to embrace the gay perverted participants...." Tunick said.

And the truly nauseating part is that this clown can't understand *why* that was the case.

The cool thing about getting 5,000 people to pose for a photo is that you can expect at least several hundred of them to line up and BUY a print later. KaCHING!

He said “and vice versa”. Does this mean that they were heterophobic?

Right. We know how reserved and shy those gays are. (eyes rolling)

It's called porn.

Having walked several beaches near Sydney on hot summer days I can assure you that there are some *very* healthy young sheilas to be seen in Oz (didn't pay much attention to the blokes)!

straight participants to embrace the gay participants

If I had to guess, the problem was more getting straights to embrace people of the same sex, and gays to embrace people of the opposite sex.

Absolutely! 5200 people who WANT to get naked for cameras are usually NOT the type you want to see naked.
