 Hundreds of naked people are set to gather on a chilly rooftop in Australia in July after a supermarket dropped its objections to a mass nude photo shoot by renowned New York artist Spencer Tunick.  Woolworths had refused permission due to fears that a photo shoot in its rooftop car park would disrupt its busy Saturday morning trade, but gave the go-ahead after organizers changed the date.  "We're very supportive of the Provocaré Festival of the Arts and the Chapel Street community in which we operate," a Woolworths spokesperson said, adding that the festival organizers' flexibility with timing convinced the supermarket to allow the photoshoot to go ahead.

 WOOLIES has reversed its ban on world-renowned artist Spencer Tunick to stage his mass nude photoshoot on its carpark rooftop in Prahran.  Tunick, whose nudes have graced the Sydney Opera House and world heritage sites, wanted to photograph those willing to strip off for art’s sake during Prahran’s Provocaré festival in July.  No it wasn’t too fresh for the Fresh Food People, although those willing to bare all in Melbourne’s winter might have raised as many goosebumps as eyebrows.
