These couples are wrapped up in a plastic bag bound by each other posing for portraits to outline their bond. The artist Haruhiko Kawaguchi, covers people in lube and then vacuum packs them in plastic bags – sucking out all the air.
There is a paramedic team nearby as the suffocated couples hold their breath and he has just few seconds to take the shots.

Haruhiko says: “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.”

“I think love is the most important thing in the earth. I think that everything positive in the world starts by focusing on love.”
