With the World Cup moving ever closer, it’s time to start getting excited.

And, to help, American photographer Tim Tadder has pulled together 12 stunning models for a rather extraordinary calendar.

We showed you the promo video for the work of art earlier in the week, and now we’ve got all the images for your viewing pleasure.

Tadder travelled around Brazil to capture both spectacular scenery and the unfinished stadiums in all their glory.

And, with the help of colleague Mike Campau, they’ve managed to digitally integrate their 12 models pulling off some tricks and flicks at the forefront of the images.

With each woman representing one of the qualified teams in South America, it really is an eye-catching array of photos.

Without further ado, check out the amazing images in the picture gallery with this story, and tell us which country you’ll be rooting for when the tournament begins in earnest.
