    I think that most of this effect is captured in camera. Look at #1, #2, #3, and #4, they are all back-lit images. These shots were probably taken in manual mode with spot metering on the darker subject, which results in the over-exposed "washed out" backgrounds. The stronger the light, the more the background will over-expose. Looks like these were probably taken in late afternoon.

    If you use matrix metering on aperture/shutter priority, the camera will probably meter for the background, leaving the subject shadowed and dark.

    Hope this helps.

    BTW, do you have permission from the artist to use the images here?
