IN 1980, photographer, Alistair Devine, was photographing Old Firm fans fighting each other on the Hampden Park pitch. Today, he wants them working in harmony – and naked.
In association with PR and marketing agency, DADA, Devine is inviting Rangers and Celtic fans to strip naked for a photograph, continuing a project begun last year which involved customers of a bar in the West End of Glasgow.
Fans chosen to take part will be able to retain their modesty using their scarves (women are being asked to bring two). Last year, thousands applied for the shoot in the bobar pub.
The bobar photograph, which featured men and women of all shapes and sizes, and from various backgrounds, was covered by every key media outlet in the UK and syndicated throughout the world.
Says Oli Norman, managing director of DADA: “Stripped Naked will go down in history as one of the most exciting, debatable and cool pieces of art in our lifetime – it’s the kind of project that will have people talking for weeks, and indeed years, in Scotland and beyond.
“This project is on a different scale than Naked at bobar, hopefully helping to tackle the underlying issue of sectarianism in Scotland and featuring hundreds of naked members of the public who, despite having different interests, in terms of the football teams they follow, can come together and enjoy taking part in a true slice of Scottish history.”
