Approx 200 people stood naked for a photo shoot near the Dead Sea in Israel, in order to draw attention to the body of water’s shrinking size. The participants were covered in white paint, symbolizing the saltiness of the Dead Sea.
Spencer Tunick, the artist behind the shoot, is known for staging nude public art demonstrations in prominent places as a way to provocatively draw attention to important causes.
‘By connecting an environmental issue to the body shows the vulnerability of the body up against nature—and also, in juxtaposition, the vulnerability of nature that’s caused by the body,’ Tunick said, via CNN.
