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.
While Sem continues to pursue his own photographic paths, his latest finished project is an independent book about artist Mark Gonzales in which he has been working on since 2017. The book will see the light in late 2020 published by Rizzoli.
