The Blue Tube Nudes
 

Local artist James Pervis of 'Blue Tube Productions' put together an exhibition with a difference on Saturday in order to raise awareness of breast cancer. One in nine women suffer from breast cancer and so James found nine people who volunteered to strip virtually naked and have their bodies painted. Eight of the volunteers were painted blue with the ninth, Cilla McCarthy chosen by the Paul O'Grady Show on ITV painted pink to represent the one in nine. Filmed by the director of the show, the group were then set free to roam the streets in Ledbury, Hereford and Ross-on-Wye.

I was invited to take photographs of the days happenings and travelled in the minibus with the volunteers and TV crew for the day. Some of the results can be seen below. The show will be broadcast on ITV this coming Friday, 12th November at 5 pm. I don't watch much TV and have never seen the Paul O'Grady show but I believe he is Lily Savidge in drag. I will have to make a point of watching this Friday. (Latest info - TV programme delayed by one week.)
