TV reporter poses nude
for Spencer Tunick story
Sharon Reed, a reporter for WOIO-TV in Cleveland, drew a record number of viewers when she appeared on the air nude as part of a Monday, 15 November 2004, story on art photographer Spencer Tunick.
Most messages from newscast viewers were supportive, WOIO-TV news director Steve Doerr told The Associated Press.
The occasionally controversial Tunick is best known for his photographs that feature large numbers of nude people in public spaces.
His previous work includes assembling hundreds of volunteers for pictures in such locations as Montreal, Santa Fe, N.M., Grand Central Station in New York and a park behind Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. The last piece involved 2,754 participants, a record number of naked people in North America.
Tunick has clashed with local authorities in the past, who have attempted unsuccessfully to shut down his installations as obscene. [2004.11] | TOP
