Electronic dance music photography exhibition - This is My Church

"This is My Church" displays an astounding selection of photographs from dance festivals and gigs in stadiums, large clubs and churches. 70 photos and a handful of pieces of video footage provide an alluring insight into the world of electronic dance music from one of the leading photographers in this field in the whole world.

Rutger Geerling has been photographing dance events for 25 years. Beginning as somewhat of a pioneer, he has come to prominence, having photographed big names in dance music and captured the freedom, love, togetherness, energy, friendship, and magic of this fascinating culture.

As well as monumental portraits of famous DJs like Tiësto, Avicii, Carl Cox, David Guetta and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, here you'll also find intimate backstage scenes, excited concertgoers and onstage action shots.
