There's this Japanese photographer called Haruhiko Kawaguchi, whose artistic name is Photographer Hal.
And he looks in bars for couples that he thinks look interesting.
And then he puts them in shrink wrap in his studio.
He tells them to hold their breath.
AND THEN HE SUCKS ALL THE AIR OUT OF THE SHRINK WRAP.
And he takes a photo of them, before they have a panic fit, BECAUSE THEY CAN'T BREATHE, then he pumps the air back in.
And he says: "Sometimes people do panic but it seems to be a problem more from men than women. I even had one guy panic so badly he wet himself."
But he also says: "My work explores the idea of love. I like to vacuum pack my subjects because it's indicative of freshness and preservation, but it also represents the closeness and fullness of love and its magnetic power to bring people together."
And that is the story of the Japanese shrink-wrapped couples. Find out more here.
