It is hardly surprising that photographers were busy snapping away at the World Bodypainting Festival.

Naked models posed as living works of art - their bodies covered in paint - at the annual event in Poertschach.

The world's biggest bodypainting event takes place from July 6 to 8 at Lake Woerthersee in Austria's southern Carinthia province.
