Spencer Tunick Plans for Project in Israel
American artist Spencer Tunick is known around the world for his photographs of nude crowds in both cities and natural environments. He has taken his photos pretty much everywhere from Buenos Aires to Buffalo and from Montreal to Melbourne. One place he hasn’t been yet is Israel… and that’s about to change.
Tunick recently visited Israel to promote his “Naked Sea Project” in which he hopes to photograph more than 3,000 Israelis, covered in mud and nothing else, floating in the Dead Sea. The participants are all volunteers, and about a quarter of them are students.
Tunick plans to shoot the photographs in the fall, just before the voting ends for the “New Seven Natural Wonders of the World” online contest, in which we hope the Dead Sea will be named one of the Seven Natural Wonders.
Spencer Tunick has more information about the project on his website.
