600 volunteers pose naked for global cause
Hundreds of volunteers braved the cold to pose naked on Switzerland's Aletsch glacier for U.S. photographer Spencer Tunick.
The photo shoot is part of a campaign by Greenpeace to raise awareness of global warming, Britain's Daily Mail reported.
Tunick photographed almost 600 volunteers on the outcrop overlooking the glacier. Later, he photographed them lying down on the mass of ice.
Camera crews were staged at five different points, the newspaper said.
Glaciers have been shrinking rapidly in the past decade. Switzerland has about 1,800 glaciers, almost all of which are shrinking, the Mail reported.
