Manitowoc, Wisconsin USA

We’re collaborative artists and associate professors of art at Lawrence University, Appleton, Wisconsin where we teach photography, digital processes, and drawing. Our photographs are in public collections including the Art Institute of Chicago, Milwaukee Art Museum, Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, Racine Art Museum, and the Wisconsin Historical Society. We established our art practice in a 19th-century warehouse storefront in downtown Manitowoc, Wisconsin in 1989. Subsequently our photographs about existence in Wisconsin have been published in Unmasked & Anonymous: Shimon & Lindemann Consider Portraiture by Lisa Hostetler (Milwaukee Art Museum, 2008), Only Skin Deep: Changing Visions of the American Self by Coco Fusco and Brian Wallis (Abrams, 2003), Photography’s Antiquarian Avant-Garde: The New Wave in Old Processes by Lyle Rexer (Abrams, 2002), and Wisconsin Then and Now by Nicolette Bromberg (UWPress, 2001).
