Barbara Ciurej and Lindsay Lochman, from Chicago, Illinois and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, respectively, collaborate on photographic projects that address the confluence of history, myth, and popular culture. Their collaboration began while they were students at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Institute of Design, Chicago, and has continued for over three decades.
Their project Processed Views: Surveying the Industrial Landscape was published online in 2014 by CNN, the BBC, and the Washington Post, and reposted subsequently on blogs worldwide. The series was a finalist in the LensCulture Earth Awards 2015 and included in the outdoor installation THE FENCE 2015, in Brooklyn, New York; Boston, Massachusetts; Atlanta, Georgia; and Houston, Texas. Ciurej and Lochman have exhibited work in the United States and internationally. Their photographs are in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago; the Milwaukee Art Museum; the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago; the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota; and the Yale Center for British Art, New Haven, Connecticut. They continue to study and make work related to food systems.
