MEXICO CITY - A record 18,000 people took off their clothes to pose for U.S. photographic artist Spencer Tunick on Sunday in Mexico City's Zocalo square, the heart of the ancient Aztec empire.

Tunick, who has raised eyebrows by staging mass nude photo shoots in cities from Dusseldorf, Germany, to Caracas, smashed his previous record of 7,000 volunteers set in 2003 in Barcelona, Spain.

Directing with a megaphone, Tunick shot a series of pictures with his Mexican models simultaneously raising their arms, then lying on their backs in the square as well as another scene on a side street with volunteers arranged in the shape of an arrow.

Years ago, I saw a program about him on Biography Channel. It was after he had just started out doing this and it was really interesting. He's a really neat, humble guy. And some of his photographs in his "naked" series are pretty amazing. He took one at The Burning Man Festival that was just

Oh, yeah, I just remembered, his 1st series was called "Naked States" and I believe he had a photograph of mass nudes in every state of the U.S.A.
