Artist Spencer Tunick has been documenting the live nude figure in public, with photography and video, since 1992. Since 1994 he has organized over 75 temporary site-specific installations in the United States and abroad. Tunick’s installations encompass dozens, hundreds or thousands of volunteers; and his photographs are records of these events. Spencer Tunick's installation will showcase the importance of water in Israel, bringing world attention to the disappearing Dead Sea.

Spencer Tunick stages scenes in which the battle of nature against culture is played out against various backdrops, from civic center to desert sandstorm, man and woman are returned to a preindustrial, pre-everything state of existence. Tunick has traveled the globe to create these still and video images of multiple nude figures in public settings. Organizing groups from a handful of participants to tens of thousands, all volunteers, is often logistically daunting; the subsequent images transcend ordinary categories and meld sculpture and performance in a new genre.

This past May, we were very excited to print an exclusive interview with famed photographer and public artist, Spencer Tunick. As you probably know, Tunick is the photographer with the knack of getting a large group of people to strip naked, go somewhere very public, and be photographed as a collective and spirit of bare emotion. His works are powerful, unifying, provocative, and at times, just really damn fun and full of life. We loved the piece, and wanted to share it with our online readers.
