Famed New York nudes photographer, Spencer Tuncik, decided to take advantage of the huge quantities of sargassum seaweed that have been washing up on the Caribbean beaches of Quintana Roo. He got together a group of willing enthusiasts and proceeded to the beach for a spontaneous photo shoot.

His work is geared toward informing the people of the ever increasing problem of the brown and green algae on the beaches causing disastrous cleanup problems on the beaches and the consequential devastation to the local tourist industry.

In the next few days Spencer is traveling to Norway to Norway, to perform his first work of a naked group above the Arctic Circle.  Good luck with that one!
