The Family

Lens Culture... The Family - photographs by Jocelyn Bain Hogg. "...Gritty, grainy, and up close to an old-school London-based gangster family, the photos in this book document the day-to-day dealings of the Pyles - a tough, proud, criminal family that has been in 'business' for generations. They stare directly into the camera, unthreatened. They snort drugs, whisper secret deals, argue, flirt, run illegal boxing matches, and ham it up at little kids’ birthday parties. They celebrate their victories, intimidate their enemies, talk strategies and alternatives, and look out for each other, no matter what it takes. All in front of the camera, without a care about what is being captured on film." More... Works by Jocelyn Bain Hogg at her personal site.
