Vacuum Sealed Photoseries

Japanese photographer Haruhiko Kawaguchi’s Flesh Love  is a freaky and bizarre photoseries portraying couples encased inside vacuum sealed plastic bags. The breathtaking photoseries is an attempt to express “how close and in love they are”, according to Tokyo based photographer.

  Kawaguchi’s Flesh Love photoseries involved a simple and risky process where couples are covered in lubes to avoid friction and placed in a vacuum sealed bags. Kawaguchi then quickly takes snaps and the participants have to hold breathe inside the bag for ten seconds. After taking quick snaps the bags are opened and they are given a can of oxygen. A medic is also present in case things go awry.
