About Barbara Ciurej and Lindsay Lochman
Photographic collaborators Barbara Ciurej and Lindsay Lochman examine the confluence of history, myth and popular culture to frame contemporary tales and critique the social landscape. Their interest in photography’s storytelling potential engages at the edge between the heroic and commonplace through a wide range of subject matter.
They have been working together for over four decades, employing staged photography, studio constructions, documentary, alternative processes and artists’ books in their practice.
Their work has been exhibited in the US and internationally and is in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, H2–Augsburg Center for Contemporary Art, Milwaukee Art Museum, Museum of Contemporary Photography, Walker Art Center, and Worcester Art Museum. Their artists' books are in the collections of the Yale Center for British Art, Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Hirsch Library at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Joan Flasch Artists Book Collection, and Bainbridge Island Arts Museum among others. They maintain studios in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Chicago, Illinois.
