We’re collaborative artists and associate professors of art at Lawrence University, Appleton, Wisconsin where we teach photography, digital processes, and drawing, and received the faculty Excellence in Creative Activity Award 2012. Our photographs are in public collections including The Art Institute of Chicago, Chazen Museum of Art, Lawrence and Lee Theatre Research Institute, Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, Milwaukee Art Museum, Museum of Wisconsin 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 and continue working in Appleton, Wisconsin. Our photographs about existence in Wisconsin have been published in Visiting Tom by Michael Perry (Harper Collins, 2012), 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). We’ve exhibited our prints in galleries and museums in California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin including Portrait Society Gallery, Milwaukee. We received our Bachelors degrees (in art and journalism) from the University of Wisconsin Madison, and Masters degrees (in social documentary photography) from Illinois State University where we studied with Rhondal McKinney.
