Artist Recruits 300 Volunteers For Naked Photoshoot Near Dead Sea

It’s no secret that the Dead Sea is progressively shrinking over the last several decades. This is a story of a naked photoshoot that was done with more than 300 volunteers to raise awareness about the Dead Sea’s fast shrinkage.

Spencer Tunick is a modern American photographer whose singular approach is on nudity. Tunick has previously created comparable pieces in various exotic sites across the globe. That includes places like the French wine area, a Swiss glacier, and a South African beach. Spencer photographed the volunteers for the shoot on Sunday. The Tourism Ministry of Israel helped to publicize the photoshoot.

His trip to Israel was an eye-opening event, according to Tunik. In addition, he said that he is always delighted to come to Israel and shoot. That’s because it’s the only nation in the Middle East that permits this kind of artistic expression. In 2011, he had performed a similar piece in the Dead Sea.

Hundreds of volunteers stripped naked and spread white paint on themselves in the desert outside the Israeli city of Arad on Sunday afternoon.

The artist spent over three hours setting the volunteers and the camera, which added to the overall length of the shooting session.

They hope that through displaying the art, people will realize how important it is to keep the Dead Sea safe and clean. It is believed that Israel and its neighbors have diverted upstream water supplies from the Death Sea for agricultural use. Thus, the Death Sea, which is the lowest spot on the planet, has been progressively shrinking over the last several decades.

In a statement, the Ministry of Tourism expressed the hope that the creative piece will encourage tourists to visit the Dead Sea region. Due to the coronavirus epidemic, Israel has been virtually restricted to visitors from other countries. However, they also said that once the caseload decreases, they would begin to accept vaccinated visitors again.
