J. Shimon & J. Lindemann

Year inducted: 2015

John Shimon and Julie Lindemann have collaborated as artists since 1983, after meeting as undergraduate students at UW-Madison. They work largely within the genre of photographic portraiture, embracing the constraints and conventions of formal posing inherited from the rich history of vernacular and fine art photography. Employing both contemporary and historic photographic processes, Shimon and Lindemann are able to reference the history of photography while also highlighting photography’s relationship to time and the evolution of technology. Both are associate professors of art at Lawrence University in Appleton, WI. They were named 2014 Wisconsin “Artists of the Year” by The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
