Two Years With The Yakuza

at

Belgian photographer Anton Kusters spent two years with one of Japan’s most notorious and brutal Yakuza gangs, gaining their trust and capturing a series of incredible photos for his first book.

The (no doubt moderately pricy) limited edition of 500 soft cover tomes, printed on Japanese paper is sold out (many were presented to the yakuza featured in the photographs in order to open doors for a future film project by Kusters) but there’s a great gallery here.

Or you can flip through the pages here.
