jocelyn-saldanaPublic nudity is the new empanada. This month, nyc artists and activists alike have been pushing the boundaries on acceptable nudity in public space. Maybe you checked out our blog last week featuring the “striphanger”, the photographer, Zach Hyman who took some steamy 30 second shots on the L train of 19-year-old actress Jocelyn Saldana pole dancing in her skinnies. Or you wandered through National Go topless day in Central Park on Sunday, where throngs of topless women marched side by side with Raelians, a cult “descendant from sexy aliens” to promote free boobage.  Breast day ever! Then yesterday,  Zach was at it again, photoging a completely nude 26 year old model, Kathleen Neill at the MET.  This video was conveniently captured for NBC NewYork here. While Neill clearly had no panties, the stunt had some panties in a bunch. Neill was busty and busted in the Arms and Armour exhibit and arrested for public lewdness,  raising the question, why and when is nude… lewd? How can a topless parade fly one day, and a form of nude art be illegal the next…and in a museum building full of nudity! The debate, like our obsession with nudity, is out there and will most likely continue to create controversy, hopefully dialogue. Free your beasts,free your mind.

Someone is finally giving us a decent justification for the New York City transit hike and a pretty compelling reason to ride the L train. Boobs. This past June, photographer Zach Hyman (Insert Joke) took some steamy 30 second shots on the L train of 19-year-old actress Jocelyn Saldana wearing, well…nothing. For more of the story check out the “Striphanger” article in the Post or check out the uncensored shoot HERE. This Never Happens on the Bus!

See the exhibit tonight:
