Rutger Geerling
There are photgraphers and then there is RUDGR. His real name is Rutger Geerling and he has been snapping photos in the music scene and other exotic places for over two decades. Compiling his best work into a 320 page spread weighing in at 2.5 kilograms, this coffee table book will be one to display; not to place under a National Geographic magazine.

The book, called This Is My Church, showcases Geerling’s talents along with artist commentary from David Guetta, Carl Cox, W&W and other leading artists in the industry. An exclusive foreward has been provided by Mr. A State of Trance himself, Armin van Buuren, to add to the already stellar amount of interviews included with the phenomenal collection of photos that have taken place from the early 90s Dutch underground scene, to the transcendence of Tiësto and Armin into trance prominence and beyond. Hitting up some of the world’s most prestigious festivals like Ultra and Sensation, Rutger has seen and documented it all.

You can pre-order the book now as part of the phase 1 rollout with the first shipment being released on October 8th. Don’t miss out of this illustrious piece of history.
