Mass nude photo shoot in the Dead Sea

Tuesday 20 Sep 2011 1:55 p.m.

A US artist, famed for photographing crowds of nude people at global landmarks, has snapped pictures of hordes of nude volunteers floating in the Dead Sea.

Spencer Tunick floated over 1,000 nude models in the extreme buoyancy of the Dead Sea's ultra-saline waters and covered them in its famous health-giving black mud.

The artist chose the Dead Sea for his latest project to deliver an environmental message highlighting the plight of the world's lowest and saltiest body of water.

The fabled salty lake is dropping nearly 1.21 metres a year.

The Dead Sea is linked to the sites of the biblical Sodom and Gomorra. One conservative Israeli lawmaker compared the photo shoot to that ancient debauchery.
