Tunick — who rather sensibly appears to stay clad during his photoshoots — specialises in pictures of public nudity, with the result that his volunteer models specialise in getting arrested.
The last straw for Tunick who is usually arrested with his models came last summer when the NYPD descended in force to arrest the participants of a mass shoot. Tunick sued the city and on May 19th this year a federal appeals court in Manhattan decided the First Amendment gave him the right to take the pictures, despite laws banning public nudity.
With the decision upheld by the High Court, the session went ahead this week, and very odd they all looked too — rather like unpeeled prawns laid out on the sidewalk, apart from Tunick, who was clothed and looked warm and cosy. Jolly good on him, I say, and long may the freedom of artistic expression continue.

Consequently, when engaging with social media, it is critical to remind yourself that what you see is not an accurate picture of reality. Don't compare yourself to the images of friends, colleagues, or celebrities. Remind yourself that it is just a snapshot of their life—and one that they want you to see.
Generally speaking so much of what we think we see and understand is not an accurate representation of reality. Anyone since most of us have minimal self awareness and knowledge even when we do not intend to deceive and think we are accurately portraying ourselves, we are probably not.
Why I don't lie on social media. I don't like to lie. I don't want to make anyone jealous. I believe truth is a very important value.
I get nothing out of lying. I am a kindness matters person. Lies can come back to you in ways you cannot imagine 7. I finally take much pride in being a very honest person, whether anyone else cares or not. My husband did not marry a liar. Please feel free to share this.
