Anton Kusters is a photographer specialised in long term projects, creating images, film, sometimes even words… and always looking for interesting collaborations. He loves jumping down rabbit holes and staring aimlessly in the distance for extended periods of time. Preferably through a window.
ODO YAKUZA TOKYO is an intimate photographic account of the inaccessible subculture of Japanese organized crime: the Yakuza.
For two years, I documented 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, I try to show the modern day enigma that is “Yakuza” in Japan.
