There is a deadly code of conduct that operates beyond the boundaries of the everyday.
It's a world where anger, strength and terrifying ferocity must be controlled with total precision and perfect timing.
It is an art know to only a few.In this unique project, Kate Kray has met such men and talked to them on their own ground.
They have opened up to her, told her their stories - the hunger and poverty they have endured as kids with crime and violence on every street corner, a world where it's a thin line between survival and the cold slab in the city mortuary.With integrated photographs, the portraits of these men reveal not only their awesome and terrifying presence, their power and brutal strength, but their underlying humanity and dignity too.The result of this collaboration is a revelation - portraits in words and pictures of tough guys who are smooth, loaded and hard as rock.
Men who have gone to the brink, and have survived to turn their lives around to tell their tale...
