< 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 fourth issue is a collection of works by photographer Hiroko Komatsu. She develops installation works that emphasize the mate-riality of photography and addresses the conceptual theme of "death" through a series of photographs. Ruins, discarded tools, abandoned building materials. And a gentle breeze.
In birth there is hope, in death there is quiet and even beauty, but between birth and death there is desolation. (from the text)
The materials that quietly prolong their lives, forgotten by human beings, slowly begin to "die" in the medium of photography.

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 > 。

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。
