Spencer Tunick 1,000 Person Nude Photo Shoot at Dead Sea in Israel

Spencer Tunick organized a 1,000 person nude photo shoot today at the Dead Sea in Israel, his first in the Middle East.

Dawn over the lowest spot on earth illuminated a Dead Sea very much alive on Saturday, as more than 1,000 floating nude Israelis posed for a mass shoot by US photographer Spencer Tunick.

The project, Tunick’s first in the Middle East, is part of a bid to boost Israel’s campaign to have the salt-saturated feature recognised as one of the world’s seven natural wonders in a global online vote in November.

Experts warn that the Dead Sea could dry out by 2050 unless urgent steps are taken to halt its demise.
