DJ Faces: A Journey Through House Music
Twelve years in the making, over 100 portraits, 1000s of miles covered worldwide and one joint delicately rolled for Moodymann - DJ Faces is the definitive dance music family photo album.
This mammoth project is the brainchild of Jos Kottmann a fashion photographer and dance music aficionado based in Rotterdam. Jos spent twelve years (about one-third of his life) capturing over 100 photographs of some of the most seminal DJs in dance music. He even took time off his honeymoon to shoot Roy Davis Jr in London. In that regard, his wonderful debut book "DJ Faces' owes as much to his patient and understanding wife as it does his persistence and passion for dance music.
