Spencer Tunick – a Deptford first

American photographer, Spencer Tunick, makes the news today as 1000 volunteers posed naked in Peel Park, Salford, to create a commemorative piece to celebrate The Lowry Gallery's 10th birthday. See Times Online report.

Why mention that here? Well, Tunick's career began to take off when he hooked up with Hales Gallery on Deptford High Street (now in Shoreditch), and some folk round these parts were showing their parts in a mass photographic installation in Greenwich in 2001. See anyone you recognise?
