Thousands of naked people gathered in Amsterdam Sunday for a photo shoot with U.S. photographer Spencer Tunick.

They took part in a series of four nude group photos for the early morning shoot. The first and largest composition was shot in a parking garage (photo above). Nude bodies lined the railings of the garage’s twin circular towers, projecting a pattern of multicolor strips against the while building and an overcast sky.

Another photo shoot involved dozens of women posing naked on their bicycles over one of Amsterdam’s historic canals. They posed with their chins pointed triumphantly upward toward the sky.

The New York-based Tunick has been photographing thousands of naked people in public settings worldwide: London, Vienna, Buenos Aires and Buffalo. In Mexico City last year, he set a record for naked photography with a photo of 18,000 people in the buff.
