Tunick is known worldwide for his unique photographic projects, where thousands volunteer to be photographed in the nude in order to create large installations. These installations are created by combining the naked human body along with natural and urban landscapes, which are then documented with a series of stills and video shots.

Tunick came to Israel to shoot a special project at the Dead Sea, (the lowest place on earth) where a 1,000 volunteers participated. The project is meant to raise international awareness to the danger of the dehydration of the Dead Sea. Additionally, Tunick hopes his project will help with the selection of the Dead Sea as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature and bring international attention to the region.
