Scope Out on til 3rd June
12 July 2014
Georges House Gallery was over flowing on Saturday evening as world famous artist Spencer Tunick welcomed participants and public to the unveiling of his latest exhibition Scope Out. Spencer had made a flying visit to the UK specially to create this new body of work for the Museums at Night programme and Strange Cargo is delighted to have the opportunity so collaborate with him to deliver this amazing collection of photographs.

More than 150 people were selected to take part in this work, which involved them posing naked for individual portraits at the photo shoot which took place at the beautiful location of The Warren on Folkestone's seafront. The images, which are framed by the backdrop of the English Channel, are now on display in individual keychain scopes, a device that Spencer used in his formative years. Scope Out will remain on show to the public at Georges House Gallery until 3rd June - please visit the gallery page for opening times.
