Monday's Odd Item In The Den-Body-Shrink-Wrapped People?

$5.69 a pound?! It's not even deboned!

Okay, I'm gonna make this brief, because just looking at these pictures is giving me a panic attack. Japanese photographer Haruhiko Kawaguchi came up with a pretty original way to photograph couples. Unless there's somebody else out there who's stuffing humans into vacuum seal bags before sucking all of the air out so that he can photograph their seemingly lifeless bodies. I mean, besides serial killers. 

Kawaguchi calls his project "Flesh Love." I call it "Waking Nightmare." But, you know, art is subjective. Check out more photos after the jump, as well as a video of the Tokyo-based photographer's work process, after the jump. That is, if you think you can manage it without hyperventilating.


How this couple was delivered to Jabba's palace on Tatooine.  


Aw, that red ribbon makes it so romantic.


Unfortunately, musical instruments require air to be heard.
And they require people who have not suffocated to death to play them. 


Hey guys, I don't think that's make up.

The subjects supposedly only spend about 10 to 20 seconds in the airless bag before Kawaguchi's team rips it open, but to a claustrophobic, that could feel like about 13 days. One guy supposedly peed himself while in the bag, which I don't find surprising in the least. I peed myself midway through writing this post.
