Make Manchester History: Get Naked
If there’s one thing you don’t see much of in Manchester, it’s naked people. This is a pity but, considering the climate around here, hardly surprising. Plans are afoot, however, to persuade 1,000 people to strip to their birthday suits and congregate en masse at a number of famous Manchester landmarks. A strange exercise, perhaps, but not so if you are at all familiar with Spencer Tunick’s photographic work. Here’s Spencer:
And here’s an example of the type of photo he’s famous for:
So you get it now – he’s the naked people photographer. If you think it’s a bit nippy to do it up in Manchester, however, have a look at this one – on a glacier.
I’m impressed everyone turned up – no one got cold feet. Get it? I said I’m impressed nobody got cold...oh, never mind. Manchester landmarks due to be given the Spencer treatment are rumoured to include the Lowry museum (Spencer is, apparently, very inspired by L.S’s work) and Albert Square. Anyone wishing to take part in the mass nudity event can register their interest on The Lowry’s website.
