Vanessa Beecroft

Vanessa Beecroft is known for performances that somehow transpire a similar motif to Spencer Tunick's installations: the nude figure, in group, in a transgressive, non-sexualized format.

I would say that Vanessa is not as concerned with the urban environment as Spencer, and her work is more "glamorous", including the fact that it's always female models, quite often chosen to be of a similar body type or skin color as part of the composition elements, and often using some partial clothing or props (note the boots in the first photo), while Spencer always insists in full nudity (no necklaces, no glasses, etc).
