Japan continues to provide plenty of material when it comes to bizarre trends. The latest? Vacuum-packed wedding photos.
Tokyo-based photographer Haruhiko Kawaguchi'songoing photo series will take your breath away, literally. Titled "Flesh Love", it 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 simple, albeit risky. 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. Wow!
"Removed" is an awesome photo project by American photographer Eric Pickergill that highlights our horrible addiction to smartphones in a whole new way. Pickergill removes phones and other digital devices from his photos and as a result presents an entirely new photo—one that shows how much we are missing out on everyday moments all because of technology.
