Title: Yakuza
Year: 1993
Location: Kyoto, Japan

I met Tokutaro Takayama, a yakuza leader in Kyoto in 1993. On the top floor, the elevator doors open on a narrow corridor of about 20m long with an unhappy polar bear at the end. Bodyguards lining the wall, in his office, a portrait gallery of his ancestors' lineage and a bronze statue of Napoleon on his desk. Only one desire for the portrait: The bear! And when you ask a yakuza to smile, he smiles backwards!

Shot on Hasselblad with a 80mm

All photographs come with a Certificate of Authenticy and are numbered and digitally signed by the artist.

Printing & Framing

Print sizes depend on the support because photographs' dimensions slightly vary from picture to picture. The variation depends on the camera used and the editing process.

Fine Art Prints have white boarders, because they are meant to fit in standard frames. The dimensions of white boarders vary to fit the exact dimensions of the photograph.

Aluminium and Floater Frames do not have white boarders. These supports are custom-made to fit the exact dimensions of the photograph. Therefore, the sizes vary slightly from the standard sizes.
