DJ – is a coffee-table style collection of DJ portraits by Krijn van Noordwijk.
You can preview the book above.
With over 140 studio portraits of DJ’s from all over the world, photographer Krijn van Noordwijk honours today’s musical hero.
Most of the time, your average person in an audience only catches a glimpse of the artist, standing behind a pair of decks on a vast distant stage. Now this book is showing some of the personalities close up, in more than one sense. It puts an icon to the idol.
All studio portraits are shot in a classical way but the expressions and emotions of the subjects are rather contemporary. Van Noordwijk spent over two years of DJ hunting to create this unique collection of portraits of some of the world’s best-known and most talented DJ’s. Carl Cox, Sven Vath, Armin van Buuren, Derrick May, Tommie Sunshine and Juan Atkins are just some of the names that go with the portraits in this book. Krijn’s idiosyncratic style of portrait photography makes this collection a true tribute to the DJ.
