Models for U.S. artist Spencer Tunick enter the Dead Sea at sunrise as Tunick directs them in his latest mass nude environmental art installation on Sept. 17. The nude men and women take positions on various levels of the beach that were covered by the mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea several years ago. Tunick assembled over 1,000 people who volunteered to strip naked and pose for his photographs in order to bring attention to the sea's receding waters.
