arts Photographer stages artistic nude shoots amid lockdown Published 1th May Written by Oscar Holland, CNN. American artist Spencer Tunick is best known for bringing hundreds - and sometimes thousands - of participants together to pose for striking mass nude photographs. Previous installations have seen him transform sites like the Sydney Opera House into seas of exposed bodies, all in the name of art. But with Covid sending him into lockdown in New York, Tunick has had to find a new medium for his work: video conferences. The artist and photographer's new project "Stay Apart Together" sees him asking groups of face mask-wearing participants to strip down and assume coordinated poses before he captures them in single collage-style screenshots.
One of his models, year-old Chiffeni Rofe, has been stuck at home for weeks, having left her job shortly before the Covid crisis hit Australia. Although a fan of Tunick's work, Rofe said it was unlikely that she would ever have taken part in one his outdoor projects. But posing nude from the comfort of home was less "confronting," she said on the phone from Melbourne.
Not safe for work or is it?

His art has stirred controversy in the past, leading to his arrest on multiple occasions. He was once the subject of a dispute between the US Supreme Court and New York's then-mayor, Rudy Giuliani, who believed the city would be "irreparably harmed" if one of the shoots were staged there.
Inan Australian supermarket chain initially banned a shoot from the parking lot of one of its Melbourne stores, citing inconvenience to shoppers, though the decision was ultimately reversed following a high-profile petition.

After Donald Trump was nominated as the Republican Party's presidential candidate inTunick directed women to pose naked across from the site of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland to protest his long history of misogynistic comments. Last year, he photographed around naked participants as they held up images of nipples outside Facebook's headquarters to challenge the social media giant's policies towards nudity.
But while he has previously used his art as a form of protest, Tunick said his new project is simply part of his ongoing push to destigmatize nudity and encourage people to "respect the human body as an art form, like a painting or a sculpture.
