The 2011 photoshoot, attended by over 1,000 Israelis, was intended to raise awareness to the state of the sea’s shrinking shores, and the harmful impact this was having on the surrounding environment.
But Tunick told Channel 2 News on Monday that things had only gotten worse since then.
“Five years ago the situation was not as bad as it is now with the Dead Sea, he said.
In a bid to draw renewed attention to the problem, the artist once again organized a nude photoshoot on the shores of Earth’s lowest lake early Sunday morning, though this time he only invited 15 activists to take part.
