1000 ISRAELIS IN NUDE SHOOT AT THE DEAD SEA

Naked volunteers pose for American photographer Spencer Tunick on the shores of the Dead Sea in Israel.
At dawn this morning, at the lowest point on earth, more than 1000 Israelis volunteered to pose nude for photographer Spencer Tunick at the Dead Sea.  Mr. Tunick is famed for photographing crowds of naked people in public spaces around the world.

The Dead Sea was chosen to send an environmental message of the plight of the lowest and saltiest body of water on earth. The Dead Sea is dropping by nearly 4 feet a year. Experts warn that the Dead Sea could dry out by 2050 unless steps are taken to halt its demise.

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 recognized as one of the world’s seven natural wonders in a global online vote in November.
