It has been a year since we started Portrait Monday's on our blog, and we thought we would celebrate with a monumental portrait for this portrait monday. A work by Spencer Tunick.
Spencer Tunick, The Ring (Ludwigstrasse, Munich), 2012. Art installation
Spencer Tunick is an installation artist and photographer whose medium is naked people: “I just create shapes and forms with human bodies. It’s an abstraction, it’s a performance, it’s an installation”. His nude mises en scene are taken in public settings of allover the world. Since 1994 he has shot over 75 human installations, in every continent (even Antartica), with over 100.000 nudes. He defines his works as nude installations on large-scale. In May 2007, he broke his personal record shooting over 18.000 naked people in Mexico city.
