More than 100 people showed up to pose naked in the Whitsundays in Queensland for photographer Spencer Tunick, who praised Aussies for being body positive.
He’s spent more than 25 years photographing naked people around the world but there’s something about Australians that keeps Spencer Tunick returning to make some of his most memorable human installations.
“Australians are much more body positive and more open than most other countries,” Tunick told AAP.
“Australians have the ability to go beyond their limits, to try new things, and to trust people.”
For his latest work, Sea Earth Change sponsored by The Iconic, more than 100 participants travelled to Queensland’s Airlie Beach in the Whitsundays to participate.
Some had flown inter-state while one woman hailed from Seattle in Washington, USA. She’d previously posed for Tunick in Norway and remarked how much nicer it was to be naked in the heat.
For nearly five hours and across two island locations near Whitehaven Beach’s famous turquoise shores, the US-based photographer stood atop ladders in the sand.
Through a megaphone, he commanded the naked bodies aged from 18 to 72 into several different poses.
