Vacuum-sealed pack of Love | Photographer Hal

Posted by - rita

Tokyo-based artist Photographer Hal has created the ‘Flesh Love’ series. His body of work explores the concept of worldly love through couples. In ‘Flesh Love’, Hal pulls the lovers so near to one another that they transform into a single being– a vacuum-sealed pack of love. The artist wraps blankets the models with a plastic sheet in which he removes the air from to bond the lover together. Hal is able to capture a handful of photos in the few moments the couple is sealed within the plastic encasement.

‘I go to Kabukicho in Shinjuku, underground bars in Shibuya and many other places which are full of activity like luscious night time bee-hives. When I see a couple of interest I will begin to negotiate. I’m sure that many people initially think  of my proposal as unusual or even look through me like I am completely invisible, but I always push forward with my challenge to them. The models appear from all walks of life and individually have included musicians, dancers, strippers, laborers, restaurant and bar managers, photographers, businessmen and women, unsettled and unemployed, et al.’ – Photographer Hal
