Movie Info

Spencer Tunick is a photographer who made a name for himself with his artful studies of nudes, photographed on the sly in public places within full view of bystanders. Tunick's work won him public recognition, critical acclaim, and a number of arrests when police interrupted him and his subjects in the midst of photo shoots. In 1999, Tunick set out on a new project -- a set of fifty nude portraits, one photographed in each of America's fifty states, with the subject of each picture being a citizen of the state in question. Filmmaker Arlene Donnelly followed Tunick on his journey, and Naked States is a documentary look at the artist and his work, which also provides a glimpse at both the minds and bodies of the models he finds from coast to coast. Naked States was produced for the premium cable network HBO and was also shown as part of the 2000 American Film Institute Film Festival.

Audience Reviews for Naked States


Spencer Tunick is a douche - you know that almost immediately, so it's too bad that he's the main focus of this documentary when it's the people he's photographing are the interesting ones.

an interesting look at photography on the side of nudity, with one man's journey across the 50 states...

Some pretentious "artist" risks arrest while taking naked (often-times group) pictures in public in all 50 states. And he has some shyster lawyer prattle on about how all our liberties are at risk if this "artist" is prosecuted for violating city laws and ordinances. I aint no prude, but this is just dumb - guy is so full of himself.
