Eerie: These remarkable shots by Spencer Tunick were taken during in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico For a man whose career is taking pictures of naked volunteers, these photos will hardly be shocking. But to the average viewer these shots by Spencer Tunick - taken early morning at the Festival de Calacas (Festival of Skeletons) in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico - will be rather spooky. Mr Tunick, 45, used the eerie landscape of Los Senderos village and 150 volunteers in white sheets for his ‘Spirits' project, to mark the Day of the Dead - which pays tribute to people who have died.
Big picture: Around 150 people posed for an early morning nude photo installation at the 'Festival de Calacas' (Festival of Skeletons) to commemorate the Day of the Dead, according to organisers Mr Tunick, who was born in 1967 in Middletown, New York, trained at the International Center of Photography in Manhattan before studying at Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts. He has been creating astonishing human art installations for the past 20 years, gathering hundreds or thousands of naked volunteers, aiming to create scenes where humans blend with landscape.
