These are the faces of The Firm, a misalliance of confederates concerned with the pursuit of Company policy, the rules of engagement, the Company profits. And they are faces that tell their own story. Since Brighton Rock in the 1940s photographers and film directors have been trying to capture the personalities and characteristics of the British urban gangster on film. For the first time Jocelyn Bain Hogg has the real thing, the weft and warp of the faces to whom violence is common currency and to whom loyalty is above all.
