Sean Lotman - Middle Life Notes
“Somehow, unbeknownst to me, I arrived at middle age”, writes Sean Lotman. A photobook based on this theme, ‘Middle Life Notes’ comprises a collection of 26 prints shot with the Lomography Diana F+ camera, accompanied by waka poetry and an essay. A Los Angeles native, Lotman once dreamed of running a comic book store or becoming a novelist, but became fascinated with photography and travelled around the world with the woman who would later become his wife. He settled in Kyoto in 2003. Inspired by Kerouac, his background is in narrative fiction. Here, carefully cut out mental landscapes and the strings of his own drawings gradually overlap and strike a chord.
