Back in 1991 gangs struck Yager as the most interesting, compelling, challenging and visual street culture in Los Angeles. He felt that they hadn’t been well documented, nor understood by the public at large, even though they were part of a vast and powerful sub-culture that had been around for decades. Yager decided to drive around looking for gangs to photograph and came upon members of the Playboys Gang in Mid-City LA. They approached him and asked to have their photos taken. He has been photographing members of that gang ever since.
