DJ. Krijn van Noordwijk

With over 140 full colour 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 portraits are shot in a classical way, technically speaking. 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, Isis, 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 van Noordwijk’s idiosyncratic style of portrait photography makes this collection a true tribute to the DJ.

On October 22, 2008, the first copy of the book ‘DJ’ was presented to DJ Armin van Buuren at the Amsterdam Dance Event.

KUNSTRAI ART AMSTERDAM

- post: february 15, 2019

This year we will again participate in the KunstRAI Art Amsterdam, which lasts from Thursday 18 to Monday 22 April – a day longer than usual (2nd Easter day)! You can find us at booth 24. We show work by four artists.

Roos Holleman will be represented with a special edition entitled An Inordinate Fondness, on the occasion of her book The Center of Attention, to be published in April. We’ll show a monumental painting plus a multiple of Jan Maarten Voskuil, in response to the publication in March of his monograph Round Trip. Robert Zandstra will be represented with a series of drawings in response to the leporello Stage of Being, which was published in September 2018. Finally we’ll show new paintings by Seet van Hout.
