If the periodic table were made up of R. Tanaka's impressive microscopic images of the elements, students may have a better appreciation for their existence. At least on a superficial level. Absolutely breathtaking to look at, R. Tanaka's images offer people a rare chance to see stunning details of such elements as platinum, arsenic, monoclinic sulfur and electrolytic nickel.

Born and based in Japan, R. Tanaka is the executive head of microphoto-studio Cat’s Glove. Focusing on a myriad of forms including photomacrography, macrophotography and photomicroscopy, R. Tanaka also shows interest in science photography as well as mineral and crystals photography. Although his work may concentrate on organic-metallic chemistry and crystallography, he shows interest in other arenas of life including cats and landscapes.
