Sydney’s Bondi Beach was home to thousands of Australians this weekend. While the matter isn’t significant seeing as the beach is one of the country’s most famous beaches, the fact that all of them got together to take a nude photo was pretty significant.

Spencer Tunick is a photographer known for staging nude photo shoots at famous world landmarks. This one was done with the aim of raising awareness about skin cancer.

Tunick collaborated with a charity to raise awareness as the number of skin cancer cases in Australia is increasing at a rapid rate.

CNN reports that melanoma is Australia’s fourth most common form of cancer. The federal government estimates that this year 17,756 new cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed in Australia, and 1,281 Australians will die from the disease.

Tunick, the New York-based photographer, shared his feeling on the matter.

“We have an opportunity to raise awareness about skin checks and I’m honoured… to come here, make my art and just celebrate the body and protection.”

This isn’t the first time that the photographer was asked to do a mass shoot like this. In 2010 he took a photo of 5,200 naked Australians in front of the Sydney Opera House.
