Sean Lotman's statement
Over the span of five years, Sean Lotman traveled all over Japan’s many islands documenting the Far East archipelago not as it is at this present moment, but as a temporal reality fused with ethereal phenomena. His resulting photo book, Sunlanders,is thus not a historical document, but a surreal conception of society. It’s a way of mystifying banal stereotypes, slipping away into a parallel universe of vivid colors, standstill environments, and dreamy manifestations. More or less, it portrays a land that exists between this life and the next world.
