The following photos were sent to us from a reader in what on Saturday was a cold and wet Belgium. The photos show a scissor lift providing an excellent podium for famous New York based photographer Spencer Tunick.
The photographer had planned one of his classic nude people photo shoots at Gaasbeek Castle on Saturday. He expected 500 to turn up yet 802 people arrived and took off their clothes to pose for Tunick’s photos in spite of the rain. The hardy Belgian volunteers spent over three hours waiting and posing to instructions hollered from the raised platform of the aerial lift by megaphone.
The photographer said that this was only the second time it had rained on a shoot, the other time being in Ireland! The scissor lift used for the job? A rugged Genie GS5390 Rough Terrain unit, the photos would look well in Genie’s next brochure? They would certainly catch the eye.
