Since 2020, COVID-19 has taken the world by storm, so I spend more time at home and more often spin drum-type washing machine. While looking through the window of the washing tub, I could see that everything inside was mixed and integrated.The inside of the drum was like a microcosm. People continue to pollute as long as they live. To live is to pollute. On the other hand, dirty clothes are washed in the washing machine and returned to life repeatedly. The Washing Machine series is a metaphor for being alive.

Photographer Hal brings complete strangers to his confined, crucible like spaces only to convey his continuing theme of ‘love of the couple’. “I am currently seeking new dimensions in portrait photography by challenging the majestic theme of mankind, defined through love.” Photographer Hal’s latest project is called Flesh Love All, which captures not only the couples but also all the surroundings in vacuum sealed package to create an image where everything in the world becomes one.The photographic location is the most important place for them.
