Exhibition: Main Bar & Masukomi Sushi

May 9 - June 5, 2015

Tombo photo exhibition by Hiroshi Tanaka

"Tombo" is the Japanese word for dragonfly and there are over 200 varieties throughout Japan. They are a popular insect and the subject for children songs. Dragonflies are considered good luck as they always fly forward and never back. A theme of this series is, "the view seen from a child's perspective". Instead of using a net to catch my dragonflies, I capture them with my camera.
