CLEVELAND (AP) — A New York photographer known for taking pictures of groups of naked people is planning a photo shoot with 100 nude women in Cleveland, a day before the Republican National Convention opens there.

Spencer Tunick plans to photograph women holding mirrors and posing nude at sunrise on July 17.

Tunick says on his website that his philosophy behind the artwork is that the mirrors will reflect the "knowledge and wisdom of progressive women."

Women from all political parties can apply to participate.

Tunick photographed about 3,000 people in front of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland in 2004.
