Early in his career, the photographer Spencer Tunick has been more times warned,  initially when he still worked on a modest scale had repeatedly collisions with authorities and even had to spend some time in jail. Once he became famous for the authorities the nudity, strangely, has not become anymore a scandal and offense. Some cities are even happy and proud to accommodate one of his installations nowadays.
Do not believe it!
As if the law is not equal for everyone! This can only make me happy of course, but points out that our society and its rules are hypocritical and wrong.
Lately, the photographer was invited to create an art installation by the Bavarian State Opera to mark the opening of the 2012 Munich summer opera season. Over 1,700 nude men and women with their body painted in red and gold, created an interpretation of a scene from the Richard Wagner opera “Der Ring des Nibelungen” on June 23, in Max-Joseph Platz, Munich, outside the opera house.
