As the old saying goes, “A picture’s worth a thousand words.” If that truly is the case, than Rutger Geerling aka RUDGR has enough words to tell his life story a few times over. RUDGR has been one of the most sought-after EDM photographers, enjoying successes like shooting Ultra Music Festival, and artists like Hardwell, Tiesto, and more.

His pictures are never random. They tell the whole story. That makes him one of a kind. – Martin Garrix

This is My Church is the first 320-page coffee table book about dance music. RUDGR went through his entire career of photos – more than 20 years – and selected some of the most memorable and iconic images from his travels around the world. Each has its own story or interviews from artists he’s worked with over the past two decades. This is My Church is but a small piece of the life of someone who began in the Dutch Underground of the 90s and witnessed the explosion of Trance followed by the eventual rebirth of dance music in the US. Featuring a foreword from Armin Van Buuren, the book fully depicts the love, joy, and energy of the entire dance music movement.
