Spencer Tunick In Venezuela

Spencer Tunick, who for some odd reason has made a career of getting people to take off their clothes, has struck again. This time in Venezuela.

Reuters reports:

CARACAS, Venezuela (Reuters) - More than 1,500 people gathered around a statue of 19th century liberation hero Simon Bolivar on Sunday and posed nude for a U.S. artist famous for his photos of naked crowds in public spaces.

Spencer Tunick organized the Caracas photo shoot along downtown Avenida Bolivar, a frequent spot for political rallies by supporters of President Hugo Chavez.

Surrounded by dozens of reporters and onlookers, the participants cracked jokes, shouted cheers for Tunick and struck poses for the press.
