Spencer Tunick
Spencer Tunick (born January 1, 1967) is an American photographer. Tunick was born in Middletown, New York. He earned a Bachelor of Arts from Emerson College in 1988. He is best known for his photographs that feature large numbers of nude people posed in artistic formations. In these images the nude form becomes abstract due to the sheer number so closely placed together. Known as Installations they are often situated in urban locations throughout the world. He also has done some "Beyond The City" woodland and beach installations and still does individuals and small groups occasionally.
In 1986 he visted London, UK where he took a photographs of a nude at a bus stop and of scores of nudes in Alleyn's School's Lower School Hall in Dulwich, Southwark.
