Visceral, violent and yet so iconic, here comes a series of images of the 70s Japanese yakuza gangs. “Flash Up” represents this special time of Japan: a country had hit the record of the second highest GDP in the world but was actually trapping itself with chaos, both socially and economically. Guys with pompadour, biker gangs, yakuza tattoos, street violence…. The images reflect the faces from the darkest time and ought not to be missed.
“Living in Tokyo is a journey. Can there be any city that has such transformations? My life’s journey began in this city, if perhaps a little late.” (Seiji Kurata)
