Skin cancer has affected a lot of people all around the world and there is a need to increase education on the disease in order to reduce its spread.
Australia is the worst affected country in the world by skin cancer, according to the World Cancer Research Fund, and as such the people of the country choose another approach for it.
Some 2,500 people posed nⱭked in the early morning light on Sydney’s Bondi Beach for an artwork designed to raise awareness of skin cancer.
The installation is American photographer Spencer Tunick’s latest project, aimed at encouraging Australians to get regular skin checks.
“We have an opportunity to raise awareness about skin checks and I’m honored… to come here, make my art, and just celebrate the body and protection”, the photographer said.
Even though public nudity is against the laws of Australia, the legislation was changed to allow public nudity on the beach for the first time in order to mark the day.
