Yakuza is known for their brutality, tattoos and strict code of honour. So, it is very rare that Anton Kusters, a Belgian photographer, spent two years with one of the notorious Yakuza gangs. Kusters captured never-seen-before moments from their business meetings, bath houses, night clubs and even funerals. The Yakuza are known to cut off the ends of their fingers to prove the sincerity of an apology.
"893-Yakuza is a personal visual account of the life inside an inaccessible subculture: a traditional Japanese crime family that controls the streets of Kabukicho, in the heart of Tokyo, Japan," says Kusters.
