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...
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.
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.
