Barbara Ciurej and Lindsay Lochman, collaborators from Chicago and Milwaukee respectively, create photographic projects that address the confluence of history, myth and popular culture.
Their project, Processed Views: Surveying the Industrial Landscape, was published online by Feature Shoot, CNN and the BBC in 2014 and subsequently appeared on blogs worldwide. The series was a finalist in the LensCulture Earth15 Awards and included in the outdoor installation, THE FENCE, in Brooklyn, Boston, Atlanta and Houston. Numerous exhibitions, magazines and publications have featured the photographs, encouraging a dialogue about health, the environment and food justice.
Ciurej and Lochman have exhibited work in the US and internationally. Their photographs are in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, Milwaukee Art Museum, Museum of Contemporary Photography, and Walker Art Center. Their artists’ books are in special collections at the Yale Center for British Art, Beinecke Library at Yale University, Golda Meir Library/University of Wisconsin, and in the Joan Flasch Artists’ Book Collection, among others.
