A bathing obsession in Hamam magazine
Ekin Balcıoğlu and Steve Weiner are the founding editors of Hamam, a new magazine that celebrates the art and culture of bathing. Inviting readers inside the world’s bath houses, saunas and hot springs, they’re clearly having fun in their new role as bathing ambassadors, but there’s something else going on here too. It’s hinted at in Hamam’s strapline, “The magazine of letting go”, and I was interested to hear how this magazine taps into their spiritual beliefs as well as a pursuit of freedom, openness and equality.
