Behind the Cover Shoot: Castro Nudists (VIDEO)

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.
