The INSIDER Summary:

  • Haruhiko Kawaguchi photographs couples vacuum sealed together.
  • He has 10 seconds to take the pictures before his subjects need to breathe again.
  • He hopes to capture the couples’ adhesion and connection to each other.
  • Don’t try this at home.

This photo series gives new meaning to the phrase “You take my breath away.”

Haruhiko Kawaguchi, also known as “Photographer Hal,” uses an unconventional method to document couples’ closeness to each other.

In his ongoing series called “Flesh Love,” he explores the bonds that hold people together by eliminating the space and air between them. He vacuum seals lovers into plastic storage bags meant to hold bedding, then quickly snaps pictures while they hold their breath. 

Here are 10 stunning vacuum-packed photos.

With his “Flesh Love” photo series, he aims to capture the bonds couples share by bringing them as close together as possible.

“I think that the fun of couple photography is in a couple’s degree of adhesion,” he said. “The degree of adhesion expresses the depth of love.”

Kawaguchi takes the striking photos in his home, where he constructed a set in his kitchen.

After the couple climbs into the vacuum bag, Kawaguchi sucks the air out, leaving him only 10 seconds to capture the photos before they need to breathe again.

Kawaguchi strives for his photos to capture the intimacy and tenderness that the couples share.

“For me, the vacuum 
pack is only a means: the important thing is connecting to someone strongly,” he said.
