b. 1990 Sem Langendijk studied Photography at the Royal Academy of Art in the Hague and is living and working in Amsterdam. Langendijk is a recipient of the Stipend for Emerging Artists from The Mondriaan Fund. He has an interest in communities and their habitats.

Choosing to work on slow, technical cameras lends a certain tranquility and poeticism to his work.
