Japan’s vacuum-sealed wedding photos are absolutely breathtaking

When it comes to nuptial photos, it’s rare that we get to see a concept that’s never been done before. But Tokyo-based photographer Haruhiko Kawaguchi has come up with one that will – literally – take your breath away.

His ongoing series, entitled Flesh Love, features bizarre portraits of couples tightly encased inside vacuum-sealed plastic bags. According to Kawaguchi, it’s a way for people to express “how close and in love they are.”

The process involved is quite simple, albeit risky. The couples are first covered in lube to avoid friction with the plastic. A vacuum then sucks out all the air inside, sealing the lovebirds in an uncomfortable cocoon of love.

Kawaguchi then runs to his camera to snap two quick photos before telling his assistant to open the bag. The pairs have to hold their breath for 10 seconds or more, before being handed a can of oxygen. A medic is also on standby just in case things go awry.

Despite the dangers present, Kawaguchi shared that the concept is becoming popular with newlyweds looking for unique wedding pictures.

“Men and women are attracted to each other and they try to become one,” he explained. “With my pictures, I try to show this power of love by getting the couples as close together as possible. The less distance there is between them, the stronger the power of love.”

    The introducer of this technique was Gabino Amaya Cacho
    , Who taking advantage of the discoveries of Chevreul, reduces its palette to ensure the benefits of luminosity without mixing dyes with each other. Signac was also an important figure within this movement, usually ascribed to post-impressionist art. I would like to see more of his work here in this blog

    I think this is AMAZING! Not something I would try, but we live in a world where so many creative concepts have already been taken! Every time you think of something brand new of unique genius, usually someone else thought of it first. This This guy happened to think of it AND get people to do it with him, AND get lots of attention on the internet…but most importantly, these couples got what they wanted! Whatever makes you happy, right??
