Spencer Tunick Photographs 1,000 Nude Israelis In The Dead Sea [Pics]

The Naked Sea Project photo installation took place at the weekend.

Photographer Spencer Tunick, known for his large-scale images of naked humans in prominent locations around the world, visited the Dead Sea on Saturday for a photo installation involving 1,000 volunteers. The nude Israelis posed in the world’s lowest point, for Tunick’s first Middle East shoot. It was designed to highlight the plight of the Dead Sea, which some estimates show is shrinking by three feet a year, with experts warning it could dry out by 2050.
