**CONTAINS NUDITY** Colombians turned out en masse to shed their inhibitions along with their clothing for American photographer Spencer Tunick's nude photo art project in Bogota's Bolivar Plaza. It was the latest event staged by Tunick, who has done nude photo shoots in cities around the globe, including in Mexico City, Amsterdam and Sydney. The models posed au naturel in the square in Bogota's historic area where the city's cathedral and other monuments are located. SOUNDBITE: Spencer Tunick, photographer, saying (English): "The body for me represents purity and unity and a positive notion of life. So bringing the body into a space of government and tradition just brightens the whole place up for me. It's sort of like throwing down pink and red and blue paint. It's sort of like this lighting bolt - an explosion of life." Ivonne Morales said she thought it would be fun to take part in Tunick's project. SOUNDBITE: Ivonne Morales, participant, saying (Spanish): "This performance really attracted me because it's a crazy thing that someone does once in their lifetime. It's something different, beautiful. It seems to me that his activities are works of art. So I think it's a lot of fun." The photographs will be displayed in Bogota's Museum of Modern Art later this year, and all of the participants will receive a limited edition print.
