The film is deceptively edited. Spencer Tunick did two Times Square shoots, one in 1997 and one in 1999. At the start of the film, his arrest at the 1999 shoot is incorporated into footage from the 1997 shoot. The Naked States tour happened 1997-98. The film makes it appear as if Spencer had criminal charges pending at the time of the tour.
Spencer's arrest and vindication are used to bookend the film. In fact, all that happened a year after the Naked States tour concluded. See more »
"Naked States" documents the photo-art odyssey of a man and his quest to photograph people and places all over America with the centerpiece of each work being the naked human form of ordinary people from individuals to scores. The film looks at the artist and his vision, the people who posed, the poignant beauty of the art, and the attitudes, opinions, and philosophies of ordinary folk regarding this compelling endeavor and artistic adventure. As much a study of human nature as of human form.
