No Clothes, No Cars, Just Bikes

Brooklyn photographer Spencer Tunick, known for
photographing thousands of naked people in public settings
worldwide, is at it again, this time in Amsterdam. The Siyney Morning Herald reports:

Dozens of women posed naked on their bicycles on a bridge over
one of Amsterdam’s historic canals on Sunday – a unique sight even
in a city famed for its relaxed attitude toward nudity and sex.

They were among 2000 men and women who participated in a series
of four nude group photos in the city in the early hours of the
morning as part of the latest project of US photographer Spencer
Tunick.

The first and largest composition was in a decidedly prosaic
location: a parking garage on the outer ring of the city.
