Tokyo’s Haruhiko “Photographer Hal” Kawaguchi continues his series of vacuum-sealed couples, this time capturing various partners in more intimate locations. Previously, Hal showcased multiple tandems in sealed together lying on the floor, but this time around he elected to visit areas of each couple’s choosing, titling the installment “Flesh Love Returns.”

To achieve the shot, each couple was vacuum-sealed in a thin layer of clear plastic, but they can only remain covered for a few seconds due to lack of oxygen. Here we see partners placed in intimate settings such as at home in the kitchen, bedroom or bathtub, in the office and out at the park, among various other locations.

For a further look at the unique form of art be sure to check out the video below which explains Hal’s “Flesh Love” a little more.
