SYDNEY (REUTERS).- American photographer Spencer Tunick is
searching for thousands of Australians to strip off on the steps of the Sydney
Opera House in the name of art. Tunick, famous for capturing hundreds and
sometimes thousands of naked people against industrial or urban
backdrops, wants to create a Sydney “installation,” involving up to
2,000 nude volunteers on March 1. The photo, to be called The Base, will
coincide with the city’s annual gay and lesbian Mardi Gras, which attracts
participants and audiences from around the world.
