A Tokyo-based artist, photographer HAL, has created the “Fresh Love” series. HAL explores the concept of worldly love through couple, and pulls the lovers so near to one another, that they transform into a single being - a vacuum sealed pack of love.
His controversial yet powerful series is done by the artist wrapping blankets to the models with a plastic sheet in which he removes the air from, to bond the lovers together. Talk about health and safety- please don’t put plastic over your head bit… but apart from that, Hal’s true intention is to express the “majesty of mankind, defined through love.”
All bundled up, they almost look like wrapped pieces of candy; his work is truly bizarre and disarming, but at the same time, it’s work that changes our perceptions. For more macabre and surreal photos of shrank wrapped people, scroll down and take a deep breath!
