Over 100 women stripped and posed naked with mirrors on the eve of the Republican Convention starting on Monday to mock the GOP’s presidential nominee-in-waiting Donald Trump.
The protest was staged as a response to a New York based photographer Spencer Tunick’s call to blend art with politics.
“He is a loser,” photographer Spencer Tunick told AFP after the sunrise shoot in which 130 women took part. One hundred of them will be featured in the picture to be unveiled shortly before the November 8 election.
The artist is well known for his sometimes startling images of nude people. But Tunick told AFP he thought it was his most political shoot ever, saying he felt compelled to take action.
Just voting against Trump at the ballot box in November was not enough.
“I have two daughters and a wife,” he said. “I can’t believe the language and rhetoric of hate against women and minorities coming from the Republican Party.”
He said he had to do something to counter “this idiotic thinking.”
