Incredible innovative photography from Hal who photographed couples vacuum packed – I particularly relish the fact this book also comes as a iPad application (via Designboom).
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 several photos in the few moments the couple is sealed within the plastic encasement. The series is now available in a book compilation and an ipad application.
