Sunlanders is a new book of photographs by Japan-based photographer Sean Lotman. The 84-page book contains 48 full colour images that have been reproduced from the original hand printed C-Type prints. Published by Bemojake, the book is an affectionate document of the land that Sean has come to call home. The subject matter ranges from elderly people gathering at a window to gape at a passing parade to Sumo wrestlers performing sit-ups and street vendors gazing wistfully down the lens.
The images are rich with overlays, over exposures and strange tints that are achieved during the printing process. The everyday is depicted in a vibrant and dreamlike way and delivered with a quiet confidence. With no descriptive text within the book, only a list of locations and dates provided as an index at the end, Sunlanders invites the reader to imagine their own narrative as search for clues as to the meaning of each image.
