‘DJ FACES IS A FAMILY ALBUM OF SORTS’
— Osunlade
‘IF IT WAS EASY, THEN EVERYBODY COULD DO IT.’
— Derrick May
‘I Didn't think it was all that serious’
— Louie Vega

Jos Kottmann (1981) is a Dutch fashion photographer known for his raw and honest style. He spend over 12 years travelling the world to portray his musical heroes, of which many became his friends and dubbed him ‘the DJs’ photographer’. For Jos DJ Faces has always been a passion project. It was friends and family who pushed him to share his unique collection with the world. In 2019 he went for it and independently launched his book during Amsterdam Dance Event. The love it received was overwhelming. Derrick May was right when he said: "This book is a testament to all of those things that brought Jos to this exact moment. Enjoy the simply complicated, because it ain't easy. If it was easy, then everybody could do it."

What started out as a personal collection evolved into a historical document. DJ Faces not only shows my musical heroes, but also captures the process of how house music developed over the years and how it spread around the world. From Detroit to Amsterdam and from London to Johannesburg; music knows no boundaries, and neither do I. For the sake of music, I will travel the globe.
