Shrink wrapped love: Japanese photographer takes togetherness to the edge with vacuum-packed portraits of couples

If you are ever in a nightclub in Tokyo and the place is shutting down and someone asks you and your date if you would like to come back to his place and get shrink wrapped, think twice before accepting. Japanese photographer Haruhiko Kawaguchi has a personal project called “Flesh Love” and he’s still looking for more subjects.

So far, he has photographed about 80 couples snuggled and wrapped together in vacuum-packed futons bags. An equal opportunity shrink wrapper, Kawaguchi mixes and matches his pairings. He has wrapped men with women, and women with women.
