Jono Rotman: Mongrel Mob

Jono Rotman: Mongrel Mob
International Photography Grant 2019

Starting in 2007, photographer Jono Rotman has featured members of the Mongrel Mob gang in a series of award-winning, traditional portraits. Take a moment to view this rare, terrific series of portraits of the largest gang in New Zealand. Jono Rotman captured the faces of more than 200 members of this gang.

The Mongrel Mob is an organised street gang based in New Zealand that has a network of more than thirty chapters throughout the country. They are especially active in King Country, Opotiki and Hastings. Some of the best known chapters are Mongrel Mob Hastings, Mongrel Mob Porirua and Mongrel Mob Notorious. The Mongrel Mob’s main rival is the Black Power gang and there have been several very public and violent clashes between the two gangs over the years.
