Alps site of naked photo shoot
Photographer Spencer Tunick convinced nearly 600 people to pose naked Saturday atop a melting Swiss glacier in the Alps.
Tunick, known for his mass naked photo shoots in various places around the globe, was commissioned by Greenpeace to take the Alps photo as part of a campaign to raise awareness about global warming, BBC News reported Saturday.
The photo was taken atop the Aletsch glacier, a 7,545-foot body of ice designated as a Unesco World Heritage site.
body landscapes, as he calls them, have been shot in Caracas and New York, among other places.
