Dimensions: 150 x 300 mm
A native of Los Angeles, Sean Lotman draws his inspiration from narrative fiction as well as cinema, his palette honoring the unreal colors of Technicolor films from the 1940s and 1950s. He creates the special, somewhat psychedelic atmosphere in his work through liberal color experimentation and an unorthodox dodge-and-burn technique in his darkroom. While printing his images, he is searching for a subjective feeling more resembling reverie than reality. The Sniper Paused So He Could Wipe His Brow is his fourth book. He lives in Kyoto, Japan, with his wife, Ariko, their son, Tennbo, and their dog, Monk.
'The Sniper Paused So He Could Wipe His Brow' brings together 96 images made with a Diana camera and 20 short poems. The story spans 15 years of travel.
