Last Saturday over 1000 Israelis posed naked for American art photographer Spencer Tunick. After 75 similar shoots around the world, this was Tunick’s first in the Middle East and was meant to call attention to the Dead Sea. Tunick, who is Jewish and has family in Israel stated:
â€œThis is not just to make art, this is to celebrate that this is happening in Israel,â€ Tunick, 44, told the crowd before we undressed, adding that he had made more than 20 trips to Israel and has family in Netanya and Kibbutz Revivim in the Negev. This installation could not happen [anywhere] else in the Middle East, he said.
Below are some choice photos from the event:
Man, I haven’t seen so many naked Jews since… uh… never mind.
Shut up! You know you were thinking the same thing!
