Over 5,000 Australians bare all for art’s sake (NSFW photos, video)
Thousands of Aussies turned up at Sydney’s iconic Opera House on Monday to get naked in the name of art.
New York-based snapper Spencer Tunick, who is famous for his group shots of naked people, posed some 5,200 participants for more than an hour in a variety of positions.
People came in all shapes and sizes and pregnant Amanda Burke even re-scheduled the birth of her twins so she could take part. She said: “We’ve always admired Spencer’s work, so we were willing to put everything on hold to take part in this remarkable event – including our twins.”
Titled Mardi Gras: The Base, the photo shoot was commissioned by the city’s Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras festival.
