Each div of content contains a <figure> tag with the image.  http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_figure.asp

Seems like you could just use a background div with position:static, load text into other divs stacked vertically on the page with more divs in between that have background:transparent. The transparent divs would act like windows through the text content to reveal the static background images. Then with javascript/jquery monitor scroll position and swap out the source of the background image on the static div so a new picture appears through the windows when scrolling past a predetermined points in the height of the page.

Shame it does not work on that site in Chrome v27. At least not on a Mac. The images are just fixed. Works in Firefox though. Nice effect!

I have the same version of Chrome. The images are fixed on the page. I looked through the plugins and none are disabled. Weird.

They are using background-attachment fixed, with a bottom padding
This is what is giving the effect.

A stripped down version.

If you remove the bottom padding or the fixed class the effect is gone
It is, as Tommy has said, a very nice unobtrusive effect, never seem it anywhere else
