The subject of this photograph is a "fan boy" in the most literal sense of the word----i.e., he's a boy with a fan. In Japan. The photographer, Kamoda/Nathan Duckworth, has a blog that I highly recommend to anyone in need of visual inspiration. I intend to blog-roll it as soon as I'm done with this: "Daily Photos of Everyday Japan."
This---one of my favorite Flickr Creative Commons photos ever---is one you won't want to miss:
The photographer explains: "A little boy dressed in hakama for Shichi-go-san. At Heian Jingu, Kyoto....the traditional male outfit for ceremonies."
