Sem Langendijk (1990) is a documentary photographer with an interest in communities and their habitat, the urban environment and spatial arrangements. His research involves examining the identity of a place, the impact communities have on their environments, and how space functions within the structures of a city. Langendijk shoots on large and medium format cameras, and aims to imbue his subjects with a certain tranquility. He continues to balance his work on the very narrow edge between visual storytelling and poetic personal documentation. Langendijk studied documentary photography at the Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague. In 2018, he was a recipient of the Mondrian Fund Stipendium for Emerging Artists and his work is exhibited at art fairs and festivals, and he's had several exhibitions, most recently 'The American Landscape' in Miami with The Gallery Club, an exhibition that is travelling the USA in 2019.
