Countdown to Summer Dacha in my Ancestral Village: 6 days to go.
Have you ever heard of Spencer Tunick? I saw something about him on the teevee not so long ago.
He's a photographer.
He is famous for photographing nudes.
Large groups of nudes.
And he's coming to Moscow in July to do a new project for the Third Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art.
He's looking for ten people to photograph, individually this time, on the streets of Moscow.
Wouldn't that be a RIOT? Having your photo taken, NAKED, somewhere in Moscow?
My first choice would be somewhere in the Metro, but I doubt that would go over very well with the Metro authorities. Maybe I could stand in the grassy center of Lubyanskaya Square. Right in front of Detsky Mir and the FSB (former KGB) headquarters. Or maybe in the middle of the Garden Ring. Like right on the center line.
The possibilities are endless.
I'm actually sorry I won't be in Moscow, being the blatant exhibitionista that I am.
Someone! Please do this and tell me all about it. I can live vicariously.
Don't worry about me.
There is another photography project afoot that opens here in Moscow on September 3. Alas, for this one I am clothed, nay furred even (the new profile picture comes from that shoot). But save the date, and when I have more details, I will pass them along.
