Sem Rubio (1976) is an independent photographer born and living in Blanes, Catalonia.


Throughout the start of his career in 2003, Sem has covered different photographic genres including portraiture, street life and specially subcultures such as skateboarding – be it commissioned by international brands or exploring personal projects.

His first book Away Days, commissioned by Adidas, took him to shoot in many countries around the world in a 4 years span to document the culture of skateboarding. The photography of this book produced two touring exhibitions displayed in 15 cities in America, Asia and Europe between 2014 and 2016.


Sem's latest project is an independent photographic monograph about iconic pop-art artist & skateboarder Mark Gonzales (2020) published by Rizzoli New York.
