A gallery of Israeli mafia hangouts
In 2006, Douglas Century traveled to Israel with photographer Antonin Kratochvil, to report on the country’s shifting organized crime scene. Guided by a former mob insider named Ilan, they were shown Tel Aviv’s alleyways and side streets, its seedy clubs and the back rooms—all the often-invisible places where the mob goes about its business. The photos below are snapshots from their visit to Israel’s underworld.
