Martin Garrix had his first international hit with "Animals" when he was 17. He skyrocketed to top billing at festivals worldwide, including Ultra Music Festival in Miami, where he'd just a year previous been a kid in the crowd.
It may be one of the most interesting and fast-to-rise stories in dance music, and you can get a close-up via Garrix's forthcoming visual biography Life = Crazy, a joint effort with his longtime official photographer Louis van Baar.
‘’I share so many amazing memories with Louis," Martin Garrix is quoted in a press release. "It’s very special that we have the opportunity to immortalize some of them in this book. Together with the MENDO team we put something together that exceeded all my expectations. I am very thankful that I can live my dream and get to experience so many incredible moments in this amazing journey."
The coffee table book includes hundreds of photographs that illustrate Garrix's whirlwind career. Highs, lows and everything in between are captured in high resolution.
‘’This book is a great way to look back on this amazing journey and really show people how chaotic and crazy our life is," van Baar is quoted in a press release.
Life = Crazy will make its debut in numbered prints available at MENDO during ADE on Oct. 17. Check out some preview images from the book below and pre-order it today.
