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.
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.
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.Read more ›
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.

An interesting artist at work. Not as engaging as his first but still worth a look as he and his squeeze travel around the world for subjects.Published 3 months ago by HistoryNut
I liked to watch the nudist. It showed beautiful color. There showed lot nudists. It showed different places. It real show!
A bunch of naked people laying around. Others I lent the disc to like it because of the installation art aspect of it, like Jeanne-Claude and Christo.Published on May 27, 2011 by coramodel
