We The Nipple
BTS images of Spencer Tunick’s #wethenipple protest with the National Coalition Against Censorship.
I ran into Spencer at the Equal Rights party at the Edition Hotel produced by my best friend, Natalie White, the Jaggers, Jerry Hall and Amy Sacco. The celebrity laden event was a major scene because Paris Hilton was involved.
While he and I were sandwiched between Jerry Hall and Georgia May Jagger, he disclosed his plan to stage a censorship protest against Facebook and Instagram. I asked him what is strategy was to circulate the images in the media knowing full well that he likely wouldn’t be sharing his own copyrighted fine art work. I filled him I on my business “PICS OR IT DIDN’T HAPPEN” and Faymous was officially on board with the “WE THE NIPPLE” campaign.
Getty Images was also present for the installation, but I’m really happy that he did bring me on board to cover the event. Surprisingly, both Getty Images and FAYMOUS had equal coverage in the media, providing different perspectives on the event. I can’t tell how how satisfying it is to see these images picked up in some of the biggest publications in the world knowing that I was able to help shine a spotlight on him through my own lens.
