UNFORGOTTEN | By Kees de Jong

Logo - wit.jpg

This is the story of a son who discovered a number of boxes of old negatives in his parents' attic.

Thousands of original photos of the largest stars that roamed the planet.

Many of these photos have never been seen before. Not only because they have been in boxes for the past 30 years, but also because all images of the negatives have never been viewed before.


Rare and unique photos from international artists such as: Bruce Springsteen , The Jackson 5Leonard Cohen, Janis Joplin , The Police , Diana Ross , Santana and Earth Wind & Fire but also by many Dutch artists such as: Herman Brood , Henny Vrienten and Golden Earring.


Kees de Jong is a Dutch photographer (born September 6, 1941) who started his career creating album covers for music artists. He created a number of close friendships with national and international artists, both behind and in front of the lens.

He took thousands of photos in different settings. Backstage and onstage during concerts or television performances, recording sessions in the studio, but also casual photos of artists who were themselves.

After his photography career , he worked for record company Sony Music (previously Artone and CBS) in their artist relations and promotional activities.


In early 2017, his son Mick de Jong started digitizing the original negatives and slides that were collecting dust without anyone knowing about their existence.

Where necessary, dust and any damage were retouched to restore the negatives to their former glory.


He wanted to share these unique photos with music lovers all over the world.
