INTRODUCING

SEAN LOTMAN

A native of Los Angeles, California, Sean Lotman has lived in Japan, first in Tokyo, then in Kyoto, since 2003. His background is in narrative fiction, and his short stories, essays and poetry have been published in numerous places online and in print. He has taught street photography workshops in Kyoto, Taipei, and Seoul. His first photo book, Sunlanders, was published by Bemojake in September, 2016, featuring color darkroom prints made by his own hand.

I consider Sean Lotman the best color street photographer in Japan (if not, my personal favorite contemporary street photographer).”
