The Commemoration 2010
Anton Kusters. The Commemoration – Socho. January 13, 2010.

Photograph from the Yakuza Project: “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. Through many months of delicate preparations and negotiations by my brother Malik, our fixer Taka-san, and myself, we became the only westerners ever to be granted this kind of access to that closed world.”

Thanks to Paul Gibson for the introduction!
