From 2016 till 2019 Sem Langendijk frequently photographed the dockyard known as ADM in Amsterdam. This was home to one of the last squatting communities, who had lived there for 20 years. Amsterdams recent history shows many squatting communities had thrived here and played an important role in the creative character of the city. Agency explores the ADM community, who had transformed this disused dockyard into a haven for people who found refuge here. The ADM was cleared by police force in 2019, after numerous lost court cases by the community in effort to preserve their habitat.
