Aside from publishing IMA Magazine, a fine-art photography magazine, the IMA Media Project also undertakes the direction of IMA ONLINE and organizes exhibitions and seminars linked with the contents contained within, centering its activities around the theme of “LIVING WITH PHOTOGRAPHY” and other fine-art photography contents.

In the midst of photography and photographic practices being reshaped by globalization, one of our missions is to provide opportunities for young and emerging photographers both within Japan and abroad. We are dedicated to find and help further cultivate the talent of outstanding young artists by way of our annual portfolio review, “STEP OUT!”. Through this endeavor, this year too we take pride and pleasure in continuing to introduce Japan’s freshest prospective photography talents to the international world of photography.
