2012: The year in photos
[culture / photography]
From falling bears to cucumbers to Angelina Jolie’s leg, the Atlantic’s “Year in Photos” doesn’t only focus on the tragedies of the year… Though scrolling through doesn’t exactly leave you feeling great.
The naked world of Spencer Tunick.
For 20 years, Tunick has been photographing large crowds of people in the nude. As Alan Taylor writes, “he aims to create an architecture of flesh, where the masses of human bodies blend with the landscape or juxtapose with architecture.” The Atlantic’s In Focus has pulled together 30+ of his most famous images. (Note: Potentially NSFW depending on how cool with nudity your work is.)

Find out whether those “No Photography Allowed” actually mean anything in this quick read about your rights to photograph. The general rule? If you can see it, you can shoot it… with your camera. (Turns out you’re allowed a lot more than you may think! Even TSA checkpoints are fair game in some instances!)
