MAASTRICHT.- Dutch dance photographer Rutger Geerling is exhibiting at Fotomuseum aan het Vrijthof in Maastricht, the Netherlands. The exhibition 'This is my Church' shows a selection of imposing photos of international dance festivals and events in stadiums and large clubs. Dutch DJ heroes such as Afrojack, Armin van Buuren, Don Diablo, Hardwell, Nicky Romero and Tiësto play a prominent role.

Rutger Geerling is one of the world's top photographers in Electronic Dance Music (EDM). Starting as a pioneer, he has been photographing the international dance scene for 25 years and enjoys enormous respect from organizers and artists. With his camera he captures the music, freedom, love, togetherness, energy, friendship and magic of this fascinating culture.

With the colourful exhibition, the photography museum pays tribute to Electronic Dance Music. More than 100 photos and supporting videos provide a unique insight into the dance world. In addition to impressive landscapes of festivals, scenery and fire and light shows, the monumental museum also presents backstage photos, intimate portraits of concertgoers, action photos of DJs, selfies of (festival) visitors and a DJ booth.

The photographer has made numerous registrations of leading festivals and dance parties such as Sensation in Amsterdam, Tomorrowland in Boom (Belgium), Ultra Music Festival in Miami (USA) and Sunburn in Goa (India). At these events Rutger Geerling has also worked extensively with top foreign DJs as Carl Cox, David Guetta and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike.

Rutger Geerling (1970) lives in Rotterdam where he completed a Public Administration degree. He followed his heart and became a professional photographer in 1995, also by the alias Rudgr. In 2015 his acclaimed book 'This is my Church' was published by Mary Go Wild; an overview of 20 years of Electronic Dance Music. With this inspiring photo book he became the winner of the prestigious Pop Media Prize 2015. Rudgr's iconic photos are published worldwide and for the first time can now be seen in a museum setting.
