International photographic artist Spencer Tunick photographed 15 nude Israeli men and women at the Dead Sea to raise awareness of its deterioration. Tunick announced the project on Sept. 12, two days after taking the photograph.
He returned with the models to the same place on the shores of the Dead Sea, called Mineral Beach, where he created a photo installation with 1,000 nude Israelis in 2011. The spot has since been destroyed by sinkholes. The danger of sinkholes is illustrated in the installation, with the men and women shown with their lower bodies underground.
