From the publisher: "Odo Yakuza Tokyo' is an intimate personal account of a Belgian photographer documenting the inaccessible subculture of Japanese organized crime: the Yakuza. Anton Kusters teams up with his brother Malik and documents the inside of the Shinseikai family, who control Kabukicho, the infamous red light district, in the heart of Tokyo. From funerals to covert training camps, business meetings to full on tattoo displays, the modern day enigma that is "Yakuza" in Japan is shown. The feeling of subtlety and massive underlying tension is present thoughout the images, constantly reminding us that this world we live in is not black verses white, not good versus evil."
