Artist appeals for 1,000 women to bare their breasts for limited edition wallpaper

With a renewed campaign to ban Page 3 models, topless women demanding equal rights on the streets of New York and controversy raging over paparazzi pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge sunbathing semi nude – breasts are very much in the news.

Now a Shropshire artist is looking to recruit 1,000 women to bare their breasts for a limited edition wallpaper.

Sam Pooley wants to photograph breasts - of all different shapes, ages and sizes – to create a montage work of art that will also be reproduced as designer wallpaper.
