The heartwarming photographs of Sean Lotman showcase a global perspective that is joyous and moving. While it is easy to get caught up in all of the world's troubles from wars to poverty, Lotman's lens sheds light on a more hopeful side of the world, embracing a variety of cultures and evoking raw emotion through the eyes of its citizens. Lotman refers to himself as a 'humanist,' defining himself as loving humanity, flaws and all. His philosophy shines through his photographs, which see the world as a flawed, yet beautiful place where people come together through shared experiences.

"Discovering and celebrating beauty might be one of the great challenges of a leisure society sated with several trillion google images," says Lotman.

Implications - Consumers look to artists to shed light on the world by offering an alternative lens that is both eye-opening, educational, emotional and meaningful.
