De wereldberoemde Amerikaanse fotograaf Spencer Tunick heeft dit weekend meer dan 6.000 Colombianen in hun blootje laten poseren op het Bolivarplein in Bogota. Daarmee wou hij het belang van vrede en van een officieel akkoord tussen president Santos en de FARC-rebellen benadrukken.

“We zijn allemaal naakt, stil en kalm. Dit is een moment van vrede dat we allemaal samen beleven en moeten koesteren”, zei een van de deelneemsters Claudia Barrentos. Dit jaar nog worden de foto’s tentoongesteld in het Museum voor Moderne Kunsten in de Colombiaanse stad.

Tunick is vooral bekend van zijn foto’s van grote aantallen naakte mensen in de natuur en in steden als New York, Londen en zelfs Brugge en Lennik.
