Nude women pose against Don­ald Trump in Cleveland

Fiji Sun - - Weather / Tv, Movie Guide -

More than a hun­dred women stripped and posed naked with mir­rors in Cleveland, an­swer­ing a pho­tog­ra­pher’s call to blend art with pol­i­tics and por­tray-Don­ald Trump as un­fit for the White House. They gath­ered on the eve of the Repub­li­can Na­tional Con­ven­tion, where the brash New York bil­lion­aire will be anointed the party’s nom­i­nee for pres­i­dent af­ter win­ning a rau­cous pri­mary race de­spite alarm from the party es­tab­lish­ment and the coun­try at large about his di­vi­sive­ness. “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 in­stal­la­tion took place on pri­vate prop­erty in sight of the arena where the con­ven­tion kicks off on Mon­day, the fo­cus of mul­ti­ple groups of pro­test­ers ex­pected to take to the streets this week. The owner gave per­mis­sion, said Tu­nick, and so while pub­lic nu­dity in Cleveland is il­le­gal, it was not pos­si­ble for po­lice to in­ter­vene. En­ti­tled “Every­thing She Says Means Every­thing,” the photo art fea­tured women of all shapes, col­ors and sizes par­tic­i­pated, hold­ing up mir­rors to­ward the arena.

Tu­nick’s web­site said the mir­rors re­flected “the knowl­edge and wis­dom of pro­gres­sive women and the con­cept of ‘Mother Na­ture’... onto the con­ven­tion cen­ter, cityscape and hori­zon of Cleveland.”
