Inspired by the classic pin-ups of the 1940’s and 1950’s, photographer Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz came up with a current version of those iconic posters.  The twist introduced by the London based lensman was to use a highly unusual substance to cloth his models.

They are from our standpoint little critters we can literally brush aside,  ignore, or squash dead if we choose to.
