“Playboys” is a collection of Yager's provocative images, documenting a notorious Los Angeles street gang, Playboys 13. Begun in January 1992; a year of rioting, gang warfare and record gun deaths, the photographs span up until 2003. This historic body of work objectively explores the visual expression and culture of gangs, their humanity and bonds that keep them together, while also exposing consequences of their decisions. 144 images, 260 pages. 32x22 cm hard cover. Published December 2022 by 550BC. Such intimate images were only possible to have been photographed from the inside.
