About the art photography magazine IMA
Since 2012, IMA aims to realize its philosophy “LIVING WITH PHOTOGRAPHY” by proposing various approaches to familiarise oneself with art photography in our daily lives. Its core project, the magazine IMA (published twice a year), has been introducing high-profile photographers and their contemporary photographic expressions from around the world while also seeking uncovered young artists. Furthermore, our activity extends to our IMA gallery currently representing 9 Japanese photographers along with our online media, IMA ONLINE which constantly communicates news and articles related to photography. IMA thus is a platform that allows you to revel in photography from a variety of perspectives.
