Here’s something ironic. A nude model was cited for lewdness after posing with a photographer inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The 26-year old was arrested.
Defense lawyer Donald Schechter said that the museum is full of nude art, and to call what Neill and her photographer were doing an obscenity “is ridiculous.” Photographer Zach Hyman, who directed the shoot, has been getting some attention for taking snapshots of nude models on subways. Hyman said nude paintings at the Met inspired him.
Zach Hyman is showing at Chair & the Maiden Gallery, 19 Christopher St, NYC.
The show closes on August 30th.
