ODO YAKUZA TOKYO 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 many months of delicate preparations and negotiations by his brother Malik, their fixer Taka-san, and photographer Anton Kusters, the duo became the only westerners ever to be granted this kind of access to that closed world. With a mix of photography, film, writing and graphic design, Anton tries to share not only their extremely complex relationship to Japanese society, but also to show the personal struggle that each family member faces – being forced to live in two different worlds at the same time; worlds that often have conflicting morals and values… It turns out not to be a simple ‘black’ versus ‘white’ relationship, but most definitely one with many shades of grey. Further information on ODO YAKUZA TOKYO is available here.
