This time last year, London-based Polish photographer Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz came out with a 50s pin-up girl calendar with one major point of differentiation: The models were wearing milk.
Wieczorkiewicz—who runs Aurum Light studios—specializes in splashing dairy on his models to create the illusion of clothing. And for his annual calendar, this year he was inspired by a theme that’s been big in Hollywood: superheroes.
“This time we wanted to make a very relaxed and colourful series… simply, something really cool!” he wrote in the Aurum Light studios blog. “So this year’s calendar is our personal tribute and a milky parody of the heroes genre!”
To get the right effect, the models stand in front of colored lights while Wieczorkiewicz himself throws jugs of dyed milk on them. Three different cameras capture the splashes; the photos are then layered into a single image in Photoshop.
German television station PRO Sieben took some behind the scenes footage at the five-day shoot. Watch the clip above to check out the artist in action.
