I got Naked States years ago so I decided to get this one as well. I'm not sure which I like best (it's been so long since I watched "States") but this one was interesting. The video work was generally well done, Tunick might even give a better impression of himself this time around and sometimes it even looked 'arty'.

I don't remember much about the gallery extra but the New York/Grand Central bit had a somewhat disorganized look to it (maybe all photo shoots are like that), and appeared to consist entirely of hundreds of women. The resulting pictures didn't look like art to me, or pornography, but the women seemed to really enjoy themselves- not much sign of nervousness.

In all of the countries shown,in some of which only a few people posed, it seemed to be a common thread that people would be a little nervous but also excited and enjoying themselves- that might be the best part of this program (the joy of the occaision).

Some pictures come out more artful than others but this is a good video for what art does come through and for the look on people's faces as they nervously have a good time. I don't regret getting it.

Watch Naked States first and then this DVD to see how far Mr. Tunick has come. He is now traveling the world rather than the US in a van.
Photos are very tastefully done and not pornographic.
His group shots are my favorite.
I purchased Naked States and Naked World after participating in one of his photo shoots in Miami Beach, FL in Oct. 2007. It's a weird feeling standing around with a bunch of naked strangers waiting for a cloud to move so he can get his shot.
I learned that no matter what your background, education, skin color, salary or what kind of car you drive at the end of the day we are all the same.

The documentary begins with a brief look at Mr. Tunick on a sidewalk in 1993 photographing four nude models. Then there is footage of him with a larger nude group
in the street in 1999 being arrested in New York City.

Disgusted with being treated like a criminal in New York, Spencer conceives a Nudes Adrift project whereby he'll photograph on seven continents and remove himself
from the USA for a time. It's a one-year project encompassing both single portrait work and the larger group installations he's now primarily identified with.

His first stop is Montreal. There he obtains a large crowd of 2100 people to pose at an outdoor installation. This is the first time he's worked with over 1000 people. He's grateful for being in Canada because he is treated as an artist which is a far cry
from how he'd been treated in New York with an arrest for basically doing the same type of public venue. One can imagine his feeling of vindication being outside
of the USA at this moment.

Apparently, the film is not strictly in chronological order. The next stop shown is London and in the
commentary track it is revealed this is two weeks after 9/11/2001. In the film after England they are in Ireland and in commentary Spencer states he was photographing a woman there when 9/11 happened. Not sure why this juxtaposition was done in the film. And
Mr. Tunick says in the commentary track that he visited about thirty countries. The documentary
shows him in about ten countries. The director/producer Arlene Donnelly Nelson says she shot about 250 hours of film. So one can see how much has been edited for this 76 minute film.

Compared to a previous documentary, Naked States, Mr. Tunick seems to be more relaxed here.

Like Mr. Tunick's other movie, Naked States, the sight of all those naked people in still, prostrate form struck me as weird, while my wife seemed to dig it. If you're into appreciating the nude body as an art form, this might be for you.

As a photographer I love the still photography and images of the photographer in the planning and the execution of the shot. This movie does all of this an more. This is a well put together film...the photos move..even the music moves in it...this is just an A+ film!

Is a good bio of Spencer and his journeys & set ups to take photos of people in fun places.
I was hoping there would be more of his locations and the people in them shown in this presentation.
Guess I'll need to buy a book to really see more of his work.

I like pictures of naked women, but I like real people, w/o thousands of dollars of surgery, airbrushing, dumb poses, etc. So I found this doc about Spencer Tunick's project to be just right. And as another reviewer said, the people posing, whether singly or by the thousands, all seemed to have had a real 'moment' at the shoots, which seemed to be 'happenings' too. They always cheer happily afterwards, proud to have dared to be free, however briefly. And I so liked the sequence w/ the Russian Museum Director who had her doubts, but was willing to do it 'for art'. I applaude her, and the artist, and all his models. Naked in the streets looks like good clean fun to me!

What can you say, a fascinating insight into getting anywhere from 1 to several hundred people to take off their clothes in public and pose. Unique results.
