18,000 pose naked

Updated on April 28, 2012

18,000 took off their clothes

Yesterday, a record of more than 18,000 people took off all their clothes to pose in Mexico City’s Zocalo Square

Spencer Tunick is best known for his photographs that feature large numbers of nude people posed in artistic formations. Known as installations, they are often situated in urban locations throughout the world and they are abstractions that invite the audience to see the naked body and privacy in a different, artistic way. Yesterday, a record of more than 18,000 people took off all their clothes to pose in Mexico City’s Zocalo Square, the heart of the ancient Aztec empire. Tunick’s previous record was 7,000 volunteers set in 2003 in Barcelona, Spain.

      Funny :D

      Still I wonder how can a One-Man can ask people to do ... even if it's crazy. People can be driven to do anything.
