Established in 2005, Sang Bleu Media originated as a magazine, and evolved into the innovative digital platform it is today. Representing modern culture, Sang Bleu focuses on the unique expressions of urban society through contemporary art and fashion, sociology and literature. From fine arts to fashion and luxury, to body modification, tattoos or musical subcultures, Sang Bleu seeks to understand and represent modern reality through the unique visions of today’s artists.
Sang Bleu Publishing focuses on experimental projects with no rigid format. It has been at the helm of a multitude of releases, in collaboration with artistic institutions and individuals, like the Palais de Tokyo, or the poet Daniel Feinberg. It also is the publisher of the globally acclaimed Sang Bleu Magazine. These publications are available in the curated online store of Sang Bleu Media, amongst other collectables from hardback art and design books to fashion and fetish magazines.
French photographer Maxime Ballesteros captures honest moments in our everyday existence, in a world where sexual freedom and exploration is becoming celebrated and commonplace. He sees those moments of life liberated and displays it to us so we can marvel over the beautiful aspects of life we have left unnoticed. Perhaps it is for this reason that so many of Maxime’s images glimpse at only a fraction of a scene – the exquisite detail of a pair of legs bound in suspenders or the intimate closeness of bodies in a bath.
In 2015, Sang Bleu Publishing focused on fanzines and more specifically in the creation of a 16-page Fetish Zine as it was entitled. With Maxime Plescia-Buchi as editor the book explored the work of Billow Fetishist. Published in collaboration with Wet Satin Press, Fetish Series 1 document’s a man’s fetish for the air bubbles trapped inside women’s dresses while swimming.
