|Everyone knew what was it was about, I didn’t until I spotted a sign with the artist’s name. Then I overheard someone saying that “they’d come by boat” indicating Prinsengracht. So I settled in to wait with the crowd – all of us clicking away with cameras at the blank screen.|
|Lots of boats came through Leliegracht while we waited, and most were surprised at the audience, but the girl on this boat got up and danced.|
|The work of art is revealed, it’s a photograph taken by Spencr Tunick as part of the Dream Amsterdam programme. The photo was taken at the same point on a specially constructed bridge so that the women appear to be floating above the water.|
Spencer Tunick is famous for taking staged photographs of large groups of naked people. Somehow the nakedness is lost in the view of the photo and we’re all refreshingly blobby.
