Thousands Pose Nude On Australia Beach For Skin Cancer Awareness

An estimated 2,500 people took off their clothes Saturday on Australia's famous Bondi Beach as part of an initiative to raise awareness about skin cancer and safety in the sun.

  • The campaign was directed by the American artist Spencer Tunick, who photographed the thousands of people who voluntarily participated in the event.
  • The goal was to “honor” all those who have died from skin cancer or have battled the disease.
  • “We will gather on one of the world’s most famous beaches in nothing but our skin, watching the first rays of light creep over the horizon, standing with respectful strength, honoring all those who have been killed or fought our ‘cancer’. national’, knowing that we will be the generation to stop it,” Tunick wrote on his Facebook account.
  • The event, titled “Get Naked for Skin Cancer,” was held in collaboration with Skin Check Champions, which provides free skin cancer checks to vulnerable populations in Australia.
  • “A once-in-a-lifetime experience to make skin cancer history through a beautiful and magical work of art,” the organization wrote on its Instagram account.
