People Photographed in the Nude at One Time
18,000 People by photographer Spencer Tunick
Spencer Tunick an American photographer, photographed 18,000 nude people in Mexico City's principal square (the
Zocalo) on May 6 2007. This broke his previous record of 7,000 people
in Barcelona Spain. The participants were in the nude as they posed in
4 different positions. Standing, saluting, lying down and crouching in
a fetal position. Tunick has been arrested several times in the U.S.
for obstructing traffic and alleged lewd conduct. Tunicks models do not
receive any payment. Their only compensation is a signed photograph and
the fun of being part of Tunick's art.
