All Chileans are invited to strip down for the Naked Bicentennial photo shoots later this month.

Inspired by famous nudist photographer Spencer Tunick, Chilean Rene Rojas plans to replicate Tunick’s photographs across several cities in Chile.

Rojas — one of the producers of Tunick’s event in June 2002 which saw more than five thousand people pose naked in Park Forestal in Santiago — aims to do the same but with a national intention.

The events will take place in Santiago, Valparaiso, Concepcion, Iquique, and will begin in Horcon, home to Playa Luna; the only place where nudism can be legally practiced in Chile.

Rojas, along with four other photographers, will shoot the first photograph in Horcon at 12 noon on January 30. The shot is expected to take five minutes.

Rojas said the events are a celebration of freedom. "It's 200 years of independence and this is the highest expression of freedom, a celebration, a feast”, he said.

The "Naked bicentennial" is scheduled to end in December, 2010, with an exhibition of photographs from the five events in various galleries.
