People look like the sea – level 1

14-07-2016 15:00

Hull is a city in England. The city is very connected to the sea. The city celebrates the sea.

People strip down. Other people paint them blue. There are four types of blue.

The people pose. A person photographs them. Spencer Tunick is the photographer. He is from New York. You can see the photographs next year.

Difficult words: connected (the sea is important to the city), strip down (put away your clothes, get naked), pose (get into position).

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