A glimpse in the life of the Yakuza

Belgian photographer Anton Kusters gives us a small look inside the world of the Yakuza, the Japanese organised crime or Mafia if you will. Kusters is the first foreigner to ever gain access to this very closed world, and made the best out of it by shooting some amazing pictures. He followed a family in Tokyo for two years and documented all the aspects there are to the Yakuza life.

The photographs have been bundled in a book, which is unfortunately... sold out. Visit Anton Kusters' website for more pictures and stories.
