In a follow-up to his 2001 book The Firm, Jocelyn Bain Hogg presents a stunning black and white photo series as he revisits the criminal underworld of South London.

The Family is currently on display the Foto8 gallery in London, England until January 14, 2012, but has also been released as a book available through the Foto8 website.

Bain Hogg’s follow-up series catches up with the new generation, Joey Pyle's "sons" the Pyle brothers, who have been anointed into London’s underground crime world.

The title also explains how the subjects have changed as the brothers are now fathers themselves.

The black and white photos provide an intriguing window into their world, a raw and gritty view of a lifestyle proven harder to maintain in the age of information. Stats for Classy Criminal Captures (UPDATE) Trending: Older & Warm
