Naked World

Loading...
This film explores the role that nudity plays in various cultures and the ongoing debate about nudity in legitimate art, as controversial installation artist/ photographer Spencer Tunick attempts to photograph naked people on all seven continents. Mass human nakedness creates abstract landscapes, seas of bodies rolling like water, commenting, perhaps, on the dehumanizing effect of miles of concrete on the self-expression of urbanites. Juxtaposing the harsh urban geography of asphalt and steel against soft human flesh reveals the human form in startling perspective, while interrogating the role that form has played in art throughout the ages.
