Sean Lotman's Artist Statementby Fringe Magazine • 12.05.2011
Sean Lotman, the artist who’s collection entitled The Soft Hurrah is featured in Issue 29 of Fringe, shared the following about his work:
Photography, like any art form, is susceptible to political convention, if not dogma. In our contemporary era, there is a certain established ‘way’ a picture must appear, namely focused. Digital photography has been ascendant for so long, the idea that a photography can be soft-focus, (’blurry’ to some more skeptical cognoscenti) may be downright radical. But a radical idea need not be merely subversive; it can be beautiful too.
These photos were taken in India with a Diana f+ medium format toy camera with Kodak Natural Color film.
