Clearly, the aim of the photoshoot is to bring awareness to both bee conservation efforts and the organization, Women for Bees, for which she serves as godmother.
The actress had notable co-stars for her photo shoot, conducted by Dan Winters- the photographer drew inspiration from Richard Avedon’s 1981 portrait of beekeeper, Ronald Fischer, who sat shirtless and covered with bees for the iconic picture. See below.

Avedon reportedly used a pheromone to attract the famous pollinators to Ronald’s skin it was the same technique Winters used to create the Jolie’s stunning photograph forty decades later.

In June, she’ll be heading to Provence, South-Eastern France to acquire beekeeping skills, joining the first 10 women to take part in the Women for Bees program. The initiative, founded by UNESCO and Guerlain, is aimed at ultimately training 50 women from five biosphere reserves to become beekeeper entrepreneurs.

In addition to the photoshoot, Jolie did an interview with National Geographic to celebrate the occasion. You can read about the interview on bee conservation here.
