< Mēdeia1.0 > is a project that uses fashion as a medium to inform people about events and social issues around the world as captured by photographers in Japan and abroad.

The next phase of the project, < Mēdeia2.0 > , will focus on the "margins" of thought and emotion, rather than directly conveying the truth.

The first issue is a collection of work by Tunisian photographer Zied Ben Romdhane. Focusing on his hometown, this project focuses on the local youth after the Tunisian revolution. The work attempts to interpret how new identities were formed among the Tunisian people during a series of economic and social crises along with significant changes. Young people spend a long day with their friends in a given place and live in the present with something depressing. Zied interprets the figure as "Escape", attracting with his unique aesthetics and questioning the bottom of their hearts and those who see them.

国内外の写真家が切り取った世界中の出来事や社会課題を、ファッションを媒体にして人々に知らせていくプロジェクト < Mēdeia1.0 > 。

次のフェーズを示す出版レーベル < Mēdeia2.0 > は、突き刺すような真実ではなく、思考と感情の“余白”にフォーカスする。

第一号はチュニジア出身の写真家、Zied Ben Romdhaneの作品集。彼の故郷に焦点を当てたこのプロジェクトは、チュニジア革命後の現地の若者に焦点を当てている。著しい変化と共に経済的・社会的危機が相次いでいたチュニジア人の、新しいアイデンティティがどのように形成されていくのか、作品で解釈を試みる。
