Behind the Cover Shoot: Castro Nudists (VIDEO)

Posted By on Tue, Nov 30, 2010 at 5:15 PM

This week, Lauren Smiley's cover story, "Overexposed," tells the tale of a group of Castro nudists who have met opposition from neighborhood residents displeased with their very public nudity. SF Weekly art director Andrew Nilsen assembled three of the men in a studio for a photoshoot with photographer Kimberly Sandie and created this video of the process. After the jump, go behind the scenes and see the shots that didn't make it onto the cover. (And, while we'd argue this video falls firmly under the category of 'art,' there are penises. Set to the Scissor Sisters. Consider yourself warned.)

Also, see video interviews with nudists George Davis and Rusty Mills. Yes, it's Naked Day here on The Snitch.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
