The famed Australian beach witnessed a sea of folks without swimwear who were guided via loudspeaker to raise awareness about skin cancer.

On an Australian beach, thousands of people stripped naked for mass nudity shot to raise awareness about skin cancer.

On Saturday, US photographer Spencer Tunick guided a wave of people without swimwear on Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia, by loudspeaker.

Mr. Tunick, renowned for organizing mass nudity photo shoots at world monuments, had participants arrange themselves in various stances on the beach before many of them took a plunge into the ocean.

The New York-based artist teamed with a charity to create the naked art installation to raise awareness about melanoma, the fourth most prevalent type of cancer in Australia.

The federal government anticipates that over 17,000 new cases of skin cancer will be detected in Australia this year and that over 1,200 Australians will succumb to the disease.

On a fresh spring morning in Sydney, Mr. Tunick stated, “We have an opportunity to raise awareness about skin checks, and I’m honored to come here, create my art, and simply celebrate the body and protection.”

About 2,500 individuals participated in the photo.

Robyn Lindner, a participant, said she overcome her concerns to strip for the shoot.

“I was privately afraid, and last night I must admit I pondered, ‘What have I done?'”

Ms. Lindner told Reuters, “But it was amazing, everyone had a nice attitude, everyone was quite respectful, and it was just a lot of fun.”

In 2010, Mr. Tunick led the last mass photo session in Sydney, in which 5,200 Australians appeared naked in front of the Sydney Opera House.
