VERY GOOD + SOFTCOVER with faint edge-wear

Zabrozas (2016) / Third Edition / 226 pages, color illustrations.

The story of 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 with the Shinseikai, my brother Malik and I became one of the only westerners ever to be granted this kind of access to the closed world of Japanese organised crime. I share their complex relationship to Japanese society, and show the personal struggle of 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.
