No nudes, it’s an art gallery
NEW YORK: It seems the only nudes allowed at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art are the ones in the collection.
Police arrested a 26year-old woman who was posing naked for a photographer, and in full view of visitors, in the museum’s arms and armour department on Wednesday.
Model Kathleen Neill faces a charge of public lewdness.
Defence attor ney Donald Schechter says the museum is full of nude art, and to call what the model and her photographer were doing obscenity “is ridiculous”.
Photographer Zach Hyman directed the shoot.
He’s been getting some attention locally for photographing nude models on subways and that his photos are not por nographic. – Sapa-AP
