About the 'DJ' project.

Armin van Buuren

Tommie Sunshine

Ferry Corsten

Chuck D


Krijn van Noordwijk is a Dutch artist and a photographer specialized in portraiture. Krijn is currently working on a book called 'DJ'. For this project he has already photographed many DJ's of name and fame and the series is still growing. Van Noordwijk is interested in DJ's and the dance world, since he is a music producer himself. But also because he wants to 'put an Icon to the Idol', as he sometimes puts it. It appeared to him that many fans around the world who love their DJ's often do not know the DJ's faces all too well. On the bigger events, there is this tiny person on a big stage, and most people never get to see the artist close-up. That is exactly what the book will do: bring the artist closer up. Krijn shoots his subjects in an almost classical manner technically, but the way he captures expressions and moods are rather contemporary. 'DJ' will be a photography book in the first place, but the vast collection of DJ portraits makes the project interesting for a much broader audience. A selection of images was exhibited on 100 outdoor billboards throughout Amsterdam during the recent Amsterdam Dance Event. For the DJ project, Krijn works closely together with Maslow, the design team that have created the visual identity for the Amsterdam Dance Event. Some of the visuals from 'DJ' are used in the ADE graphics. Maslow will also design Krijn's book itself. Through this text, Krijn likes to thank ADE, Mysteryland, ID&T, Barkers, Todaysart, Meubelstukken, STRP and all DJ's and producers that have taken part in the project already. Hereunder some of the artists that are in the project so far:
