CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - “Cincinnati, you ready?”

That's what the home page of photographer Harvey Drouillard's web site asked the Queen City.

Drouillard is known for his “hit-and-run” public nude photos and he's brought the method to Cincinnati.

A group of nude people jump out of a vehicle and pose for a photo front of a public landmark. They then hop back in the car and drive off.

Drouillard's method isn't exactly legal, and he claims Cincinnati Police contacted him once his planned stop in Cincinnati made headlines. In the 21 years Drouillard's used nudity in public places, he said he's never consulted with police before beginning a project.

Cincinnati's rich history, including the art scene and brewing heritage, is what Drouillard says attracted him to the city. He's headed to Boston next.

Opening Day was Drouillard and his models' inaugural day in the Queen City. They made stops at the Skyline Chili and the Esquire movie theater.
