U.S. photographer, Spencer Tunick, wanted to use his photo installation at the salty lake to support the establishment of the planned Dead Sea Museum in the Israeli city of Arad, the Times of Israel reported.
“The Dead Sea is disappearing,“ Tunick told the newspaper. “We need to find a way to sustain the level or to bring freshwater into the Dead Sea, but at the same time, keep all countries surrounding with water. Water is life.’’
The water level of the Dead Sea, which lies between Israel, the West Bank and Jordan, has been falling for years.
