It’s not often that you find a single major story about nudity in the Ann Arbor news, let alone two!
On the front page, there was “Fairs live large with art in varied forms.” It was a story about Ann Arbor photographer Harvey Drouillard who photographs volunteers who pose nude in public spaces. This article tells how Drouillard was able to convince two women and one man to climb a ladder to the roof of the State theater downtown and get them to pose in the buff. Apparently, Drouillard has been doing this same stunt for years.
And then there was this, “The naked truth, on stage,” which is a story about a play the Performance Network is putting on called Take Me Out, which is the story (based on a “true” story, I believe) of a professional baseball player who comes out of the closet. Much of the play takes place in a locker room with the ball players naked most of the time. Natural, I guess.
Disappointingly, there are no good pictures for either of these stories. And I was somewhat surprised to not come across an example of Drouillard’s nude photography via Google. I guess you’ll have to use your imagination….
