Hundreds Pose Nakéd On Beach To Raise Awareness For Deadly Disease

Two thousand five hundred people took off their clothes on Saturday to pose for U.S. photographic artist Spencer Tunick at Sydney’s Bondi Beach in an effort to raise awareness about skin cancer.

Tunick, known for staging mass nudé photos shoots at world landmarks, used a megaphone to direct attendees into several poses on the beach before many took a naked dip in the ocean.

The New York-based artist collaborated with a charity on the nàked art installation in a bid to raise awareness about melanoma, Australia’s fourth most common form of cancer.

Australia’s federal government estimates that this year about 17,756 new cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed in Australia, and 1,281 Australians will die from the disease.
