Ballesteros’ signature style of naked skin, tarantulas, suspender belts and youth culture snapshots taps into our darkest dreams and secret fantasies – and it’s dark, believe us. His debut book ‘Les Absents’ was launched just this weekend at Johann Koenig Gallery and merges all those worlds taken from a voyeuristic perspective in 272 pages. The monograph is produced and presented by Sang Bleu Publishing and Hatje Cantz – if the sneak peak below still leaves you hungry for more, just order a copy to bring some fetisch shots on your coffee table.
