People look like the sea – level 2

Hull is a city in England which celebrated its connection to the sea. People stripped down and other people painted them blue in four different colours.

They then posed and a person photographed them at some of the city's historic locations. The photographer was the New York-based artist Spencer Tunick.

The photographs will go on display next year when Hull will become the new UK City of Culture.

Difficult words: strip down (remove clothes), based (living in).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
