This photograph was taken in Red Hook, New York. The image is part of a project called Docklands, which focuses on three cities (Amsterdam, New York & London) and their former dockland areas. In New York, the project looks at the transition of this residential neighborhood. As a former dockland, this area is now developing as a waterfront near the city of New York. The many juxtapositions in this small neighborhood confront the present with the future, the old with the new.

Sem Langendijk (1990, NL) graduated from the KABK academy in The Hague in 2015, with a series about the docklands in Amsterdam. Evolving from this series, Langendijk temporarily moved to New York to research the similar environment. Through his descriptive, highly detailed photographs he questions the function of public space within the residential area in Red Hook. His work balances on the very narrow edge between visual storytelling and poetic personal documentation. As an observer he remarks the details in his subjects, carefully distancing himself just enough to stay as neutral as possible in his observations. A mix of landscapes, people and details of these exteriors reflect the current state of this neighborhood, with its contrasts and diversity.
In 2017 he published his first book LOT, docklands, which is also for sale at Foam Editions.
