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. Through 10 months of negotiations, my brother Malik and I became one of the few people ever to be granted this kind of access into the closed world of Japanese organised crime.
