Hundreds of volunteers have stripped naked for a public photo shoot marking the 10th anniversary of the Lowry art gallery in SalfordSpencer Tunick is photographing the models in eight different locations across Manchester and Salford.  Tunick’s aim was to capture the movement of everyday people and reflect the work of artist LS Lowry. The photographs will be part of an exhibition at The Lowry gallery – which is named after the Salford artist.  Tunick has photographed thousands of nude volunteers across the world, most recently at the Sydney Opera House last month.  But this project, involving a total of 1,000 naked people, will be the New York-based photographer’s first multiple site installation.
