Thousands of naked people in the center of Munich
June 23, 2012
Thousands of naked people painted from head to toe in red and gold were placed in Munich downtown.
The colorful scenes were the work of U.S. photographer Spencer Tunick, 45.
His latest creation was filled to the German city of Max-Joseph Platz, with 1,700 naked volunteers, giving life to his interpretation of scenes from Richard Wagner’s opera Der Ring des Nibelungen.
Tunick was invited to Munich to help the Bavarian State Opera in summer 2012.
His first work was the capture of 500 volunteers naked in Selfridges store in London in 2003.
Since then, sessions launched worldwide photographing 7,000 people in Barcelona and hundreds of nudes in New York station, in the Great Central Railway.
Last September, he photographed 1,000 Israelis standing naked in the Dead Sea to publicize the low water levels.
